Bermudians feature in film backed by Stone
A new documentary featuring international celebrities and Bermudian figures, which is backed by Hollywood superstar Sharon Stone, will be screened next week.
We the People: A Re-evolution of Economics and Politics features interviews with Deepak Chopra, a controversial US-based doctor, writer and speaker; Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg; and TV and film star Michael Beck.
Claudette Fleming of Age Concern, David Burt, the Premier, and Dame Jennifer Smith, a former premier, also appear in the documentary.
The film was directed by Emmanuel Itier and was produced by Bermudian businesswoman Dawn Zuill, with film star Stone as executive producer.
The same team was involved in the award-winning documentary Femme: Women Healing The World, which also featured a mix of people from around the world.
Ms Zuill said: “These amazing documentaries have inspired and encouraged a new way of thinking for me personally.
“Over the years, we have met countless new and inspirational people and through this journey I have found a purpose, a better way of being on this planet.”
She told the public: “I hope you all take the opportunity to see this brilliant film and, more importantly, my hope is that you come away from it inspired”
Mr Itier said: “We The People is a call for action, a call for you to run for office, whatever your office is, whether it’s your social club, your church, your legislature, your school district.
“We The People is an invitation to become peace in action and for each of us to become a leader and be part of the change we want to see in this world.”
The documentary has already won the Best Director Award at the Awareness Film Festival and the Global Citizen Award from the United Nations Association.
It will be screened at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute on Crow Lane in Pembroke on October 18 as part of a partnership between Ms Zuill’s Queen Group and BUEI Films.
The event will start at 6.30pm with a reception, which will include an opportunity to meet the director.
Tickets cost $25 for BUEI members, $30 for non-members and $15 for students.
Tickets are available at the BUEI gift shop or by phone at 294-0204.
