"…one of the best and most dramatically satisfying Canadian films of the year."

- ANDREW PARKER, THE GATE

Rama Rau Writer-Director / Producer

Canadian Screen Award nominated writer-director Rama Rau got her start in filmmaking as the only woman crew member among two hundred men, on set in Bollywood, India. Moving to Canada, Rau started making documentaries where she learnt authenticity. This experience helps her work intensely with actors, helping to bring real emotions to the screen. Bringing real stories and emotions to the screen is her passion and what sets her apart as a director.

Rau has helmed a slew of content – from feature films to documentaries to miniseries - for broadcasters like CBC, TVO, ZDF-ARTE Germany, Sundance Channel, NRK Norway, YLE Finland and Al Jazeera.

Recent release is the multi-award winning feature HONEY BEE, starring Julia Sarah Stone and Martha Plimpton which won Best Film Awards at the Whistler Film Festival, the Canadian Film Festival, the North Dakota Human Rights Festival and a LEO Award for Julia.

"Rama Rau makes an assured and compelling foray into fiction…"

Honey Bee

Honey Bee (IMDB) is a profound portrait of survival. In portraying Natalie’s life – a life that’s fallen between the cracks of family and State – we see her as she grows from despair to a more innocent embrace of humanity; a reverse coming-of-age that unravels on camera.

Directed by Rama Rau
