Synopsis

OPENING NIGHT OF "STRONGER THAN FICTION"

Wednesday, July 31 at 6.30PM (Arrival) for 7PM (Screening)


In remotest North Macedonia, Hatidze’s closest confidantes are her bees. She serenades them with a secret chant, and carefully gathers their honey without gloves. Aside from her bed-ridden mother, Hatidze’s only social contact is a visit to the local market to sell the rich, red wild honey.

Hatidze’s quiet, gentle life bursts into a flurry of noise when a farming family with seven children move next door. While she is initially thrilled to have new company, it soon becomes clear that their more modern, less nature conscious farming methods are threatening Hatidze’s livelihood.

At Our Opening Night Gala, enjoy complimentary drinks on arrival, then after the screening, join us in the foyer for dinner and drinks, courtesy of Ainslie IGA, Eden Road Wines and Capital Brewing Co. Leave your wallet at home! The ticket price is all-inclusive.  P.S. Come straight from work and receive a filled baguette with vegan and gluten-free options as you go into the cinema! 


Every frame of Honeyland pulses with the cycles of life and glows with Hatidze’s magical vitality and optimism - Sundance Institute

In Search of Mozart

E Documentary

Made to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth, IN SEARCH OF MOZART is the first feature-length documentary on Mozart's life. Produced with the world's leading orchestras and musicians, told through a 25,000 mile journey along every route Mozart followed, this detective story takes us to the heart of genius. Throughout, it is the music that takes center stage, with the jigsaw of Mozart's life fitting around it. With rigorous analysis from musicologists and experts such as Jonathan Miller, Cliff Eisen, Nicholas Till, Bayan Northcott and the late Stanley Sadie, a new, vivid impression of the composer emerges. It dispels the many common myths about Mozart's genius, health, relationships, death and character, to present a new image, very different from Milos Forman's 'Amadeus'.
