The Bermuda Documentary Film Festival will screen Sundance award-winning film The Queen of Versailles for a second time this Friday October 26 at 6.30 p.m.
The film opened the just-completed festival, screening to a completely sold out Tradewinds Auditorium at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute. Friday’s screening will also take place at the BUEI.
The sharply observed and deliciously funny film is a portrait of the fascinating and just slightly loveable Siegel family, Jackie and David, who embark on the construction of a 90,000 square foot house – but must adjust to changing circumstances when the economic downturn hits.
“The film was one of five to completely sell out during Bermuda Docs,” says festival director Duncan Hall. “As it screened on Thursday, we were able to add the second screening quickly – and, having announced it during the festival, tickets are nearly half-sold for the additional screening already.”
