image from the film Honeyland

Hatidze lives with her ailing mother in the mountains of Macedonia, making a living cultivating honey using ancient beekeeping traditions. When an unruly family moves in next door, what at first seems like a balm for her solitude becomes a source of tension as they, too, want to practice beekeeping, while disregarding her advice. “Honeyland is an unforgettable vérité character study and an intimate look at an endangered tradition.” (The Hollywood Reporter) “Far from a scolding, rub-your-nose-in-it depiction of environmental havoc, this is a tender story about the chaos of abandoning the common good.” (IndieWire) The most awarded film at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
