Swarm Season
First screened in June 2019
Director: Sarah Christman. Documentary about indigenous beekeepers in Hawaii at a time of local protests and U.S. government incursion.

Twitter Capsule: Interesting, culturally specific, formally adventurous documentary. Makes an impact despite and because of unevenness.

VOR:   Even if I sometimes felt thrown by eccentric structure, ambiguous center, and erratic tone, I admired all this as evidence of artistry and innovation.
