BUEI To Screen ‘In The Hour Of Victory’ Film

January 29, 2014

The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute [BUEI] is getting set to present a special viewing of the award-winning film In the Hour of Victory, followed by a Q&A session with Bermudian film producer Lucinda Spurling and the author of the film’s book, Jonathan D. Smith, tomorrow [Jan 30] starting at 7.30pm.

In the Hour of Victory presents the story of Major Anthony F. Smith [1907-1944], a Bermudian who fought in World War II. Offering a true story in its narrative, this film is a classic love and war piece with strong American, British, and Bermuda ties.

The research for both the film and the book were completed by Major Smith’s grandson, former Commissioner of Police in Bermuda, Jonathan D. Smith.
