The Honey Hunting

World Premiere
Lotta Granbom | , | 14 mins

The Honey Hunting is a short ethnographic film about Musa and his large family living on an island in the Andaman Sea, a part of Thailand. The island has, in just a few short years, become a popular destination for tourists. The family lives on the seaward side in one of the few villages where Westerners have not yet come to stay. But with the cost of living going up and the fish harvest going down the family is forced to find other ways to get by. In the film we accompany Musa and his sons into the jungle on a honey collecting expedition. But reaching the hive and its honeycomb high in a tree - and dealing with its angry tenants - is a skilled and risky business; a sight to be seen.

Juku

UK Premiere
Kiro Russo | | 18 mins

The dark the screen appears impenetrable, then a light appears. Deep in the darkness a man moves. He's got a lamp. His light illuminates the rocks that fill the screen. He lifts his pick-axe in the confined space. This is what it is to be a miner in Posokoni, the largest tin mine in Bolivia.
