“The hour & sixteen minutes-long documentary will give a short chronology of the origins of the labor movement in Bermuda, and then with first-person interviews of the stakeholders of the day, bringing to life the unprecedented events surrounding the island-wide strike action that paralyzed Bermuda.”

In further explaining the purpose of the documentary, Mr. Richardson added: “We believe it is important to document in a meaningful way, through firsthand reports and film, the work of labor under the banner of the Bermuda Industrial Union. As the strike of 1981 impacted the socio-economic, and political developments in Bermuda like few other events in the history of the Island, we believe it’s imperative to depict the events as captured, so that the era is accurately portrayed as a historical record for the generations of residents, students, and those viewing Bermuda from afar.”

The spokesperson said, “There are limited tickets available which can be purchased for $25 online at https://specialitycinema.bm/.”
