The sublime skills of Lionel Messi, one of the greatest football players of all time, will grace the screen at our next Weekend Film Series on June 21, sponsored by Gosling’s.
Viewed from director Alex de la Iglesia’s unique perspective, Messi recreates the player’s childhood and teenage years, from his very first steps – with a football always at his feet – through to the decision to leave Rosario in his native Argentina for Barcelona, separation from his family, and the part played in his career by individuals such as Ronaldinho, Frank Rijkaard, Carlos Rexach and Pep Guardiola. It’s a must-see for any soccer fan.
Our second film, In The Name of My Daughter, features another legend – French film star Catherine Deneuve, who plays Renee, a casino owner, in a gripping real-life thriller set on the French Riviera. The film is based on the book A Woman Up Against the Mafia.
Both films will screen in the Tradewinds Auditorium of the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute.
