Burt’s Buzz Members Only Event

June 18th, 8 pm

Email membership@bedfordplayhouse.org to register.

Humorous, authentic and compelling, BURT’S BUZZ is a journey into the remarkable double life of Burt Shavitz— a reclusive beekeeper who reluctantly became one of the world’s most recognizable brand identities. Join us for a special Members-Only Q&A with filmmaker Jody Shapiro.

Jody Shapiro is a filmmaker and photographer whose work has been featured in various festivals, galleries, and publications around the world. He has directed and produced a number of documentaries, including How To Start Your Own Country (2010), and Burt’s Buzz (2014). Both films had their world premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival. He co-directed and produced Green Porno, a series of short films with Isabella Rossellini about the sex lives of insects, which were first screened at the Sundance Film Festival. Shapiro has also produced and served as cinematographer on several works by director Guy Maddin, including My Winnipeg, winner of the Best Canadian Feature Film award at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival.
