DEAL NEWS: FILM/TV RIGHTS TO HARRIET ALIDA LYE’S THE HONEY FARM Posted on April 5, 2018 by Ana Balmazovic Film/TV rights to Harriet Alida Lye‘s thrilling debut novel, THE HONEY FARM, have sold to Sonya Di Rienzo and Aeschylus Poulos of Hawkeye Pictures. The deal was arranged by Kim Yau of Paradigm on behalf of Stephanie Sinclair. The novel 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.

Recent film credits include Sleeping Giant (Cannes Film Festival, Semaine de la Critique); Mary Goes Round (Toronto International Film Festival 2017); and 22 Chaser (2018).
