Honey Giver Among The Gods
Film noir meets Buddhism in this murder mystery story.
Director: Dechen Roder
Presented by Hastings Triratna Buddhist Group
132 Mins / 2016 / Bhutan, Subtitles
In remote Bhutan, an undercover detective investigates the case of a missing Buddhist nun and falls into a risky alliance with his only suspect- an alluring young woman known as the village "demoness."
Roder uses the conventional noir plot to shine a light on the modern-day conflict between past and future – and what’s at stake if greed triumphs. The Bhutanese film industry is in its infancy, but this is a sophisticated and intricately plotted film with beautiful cinematography.
