As was the case last year, two of these are Sundance award-winners: Ljubomir Stefanov and Tamara Kotevska’s look at the life of a traditional beekeeper in Macedonia, HONEYLAND
; and Luke Lorentzen’s profile of a Mexico City family that runs a private night ambulance service, MIDNIGHT FAMILY
The remaining two are the Rotterdam debuting PRESENT.PERFECT
by Shengze Zhu, which explores the need for connection via Chinese live-stream participants; and, from Locarno, FAUSTO
by Andrea Bussmann, an allegorical portrait of a Mexican coastal town.
