Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI) February update

Please be advised that BUEI and The Harbourfront Restaurant will
be closed on Sunday, February 24th for building maintenance.
Weekend Film Series - Sunday, February 17th
Tickets are now on sale for the documentary Chasing Ice, winner of 23 awards, and the Cold War thriller, Barbara, named one of the top five foreign language films of 2012 by the U.S. National Board of Review.  

3pm: Chasing Ice, a stunningly beautiful documentary about climate change, was a sell-out at the 2012 Bermuda Docs Film Festival. The winner of 23 festival awards, Jeff Orlowski's film follows National Geographic photographer James Balog - once a climate-change skeptic - as he brings to life the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS), a massive photography project utilising 30 cameras across three continents to gather visual evidence of the Earth's melting glaciers.

5:15pm: Barbara, a Cold War thriller by  Christian Petzold (Yella, Jerichow).
Winner of the Best Director prize at the 2012 Berlin Film Festival, the film was Germany's official Oscar submission for Best Foreign Language Film. 

Both films screen at the Tradewinds Theatre, BUEI. Tickets are $15, available from the Oceans Gift Shop, BUEI, or by calling 297-7314.
