A double award-winner from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, and an award-winning film from The Bahamas, will feature on the opening night of the ninth edition of Bermuda Docs, October 17-20.

Blood Brother, winner of a Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at Sundance, will open the festival at 6 p.m. on Thursday October 17.

Bahamian filmmaker Marion Bethel will attend the festival with her award-winning film, Womanish Ways, which honours and celebrates the leaders of the women’s suffrage movement in  The Bahamas, who fought for more than a decade to win the right to vote for women.

Womanish Ways will screen at 8.30 p.m. on opening night, followed by a Q and A with Ms. Bethel.
