The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has revealed the top documentaries in competition for the 34th annual ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards.
Competing in the doc category are cinematographers Fejmi Daut and Samir Ljuma for Honeyland (pictured; dir. Tamara Kotevska & Ljubo Stefanov), which documents a woman as she uses ancient beekeeping traditions to cultivate honey in Macedonia.
Also nominated is Nicholas de Pencier for his film Anthropocene: The Human Epoch alongside co-directors Edward Burtynsky and Jennifer Baichwal. The 87-minute film serves as a global journey to document the impact humans have made on the planet.
Finally, Evangelia Kranioti has been nominated for her feature-length documentary Obscuro Barroco, which profiles a Brazilian transgender activist.
All winners will be unveiled at ASC’s gala at the Ray Dolby Ballroom in Los Angeles on Jan. 25.
