SWARM SEASON

Dir: Sarah J Christman

On the remote volcanic island of Hawaii, 10-year-old Manu and her mother collect wild, endangered bees in order to breed disease-resistant colonies, while her father protests developments on sacred mountain Mauna Kea.

MOTHER

Dir: Kristof Bilsen

Two narratives collide in a small village in Thailand. Pomm takes care of Europeans with Alzheimer’s, while a family prepares to leave Switzerland, in this moving observation of motherhood and care.

HONEYLAND

Dir: TAMARA KOTEVSKA, LJUBOMIR STEFANOV

In a deserted Macedonian village, 50-something Hatidze, clambers up a hillside to check her bee colonies nestled in the rocks; but disruption is coming. With beautiful cinematography evocative of Caravaggio, Honeyland explores nature’s vulnerability under capitalist demand.

AMAZING GRACE

Dir: Alan Elliott & Sydney Pollack

The lost treasure of Sydney Pollack’s observational footage from 1972 has finally surfaced; witness the sonic brilliance of Aretha Franklin as she recorded her bestselling album Amazing Grace in an L.A. Baptist Church.
