Two iconic Americans feature in our next Weekend Film Series on Sunday, May 17.
Double Oscar winner Tom Hanks stars in A Hologram for the King (3pm) a comedic drama about a newly divorced American businessman who arrives in Saudi Arabia to close what he hopes will be the deal of a lifetime but is frustrated by local customs and an opaque bureaucracy.
Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise (5.15pm), is the first feature-length documentary about the late Dr. Maya Angelou [above], the inspiring writer, poet, performer and civil rights activist who overcame racism and devastating abuse to become a powerful cultural voice in the United States and beyond.
Both films will screen in the Tradewinds Auditorium of the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute.
