NEWS & UPDATES
Director Grace Glowicki’s unique feature-length debut is one of the most exciting entries in SXSW’s always compelling Visions section, which has launched everything from “Uncle Kent 2” to Joel Potrykus’ “Relaxer.” With “Tito,” Glowicki stars as an introverted man — you read that right — terrified to leave his house, at least until he encounters a friendly neighbor (Ben Petrie) willing to coax the character out of his shell.
Hawkeye Pictures options 'The Honey Farm' by Harriet Alida Lye
Toronto. April 5, 2018 - Toronto-based production company Hawkeye Pictures has acquired Film/TV rights to Harriet Alida Lye’s thrilling debut novel, The Honey Farm to be made into a feature film.
The Honey Farm tells the story of two budding artists who move to a remote farm and begin a romance, as creepy, inexplicable events, possibly orchestrated by the enigmatic woman in charge, start to unfold around them. In the hands of brilliant newcomer Harriet Alida Lye, the natural world is both lovely and menacing, as lushly depicted as the interior
lives of her characters. Building to a shocking conclusion, The Honey Farm announces the arrival of a bold new voice and offers a thrilling portrait of creation and possession in the natural world.
“Harriet is an exceptional talent,” said producer Aeschylus Poulos. “We are thrilled to be adapting her artful creation for the screen.”
The Honey Farm will be published in Canada on April 15th and May 29th in the U.S.
Rights were sold by Kim Yau of Paradigm on behalf of Stephanie Sinclair of Transatlantic Agency. Aeschylus Poulos and Sonya Di Rienzo negotiated the deal on behalf of Hawkeye.
