A triple Sundance award-winner, Honeyland offers up a visual feast. Haditze Muratova scales her way along the breathtaking Balkan mountainside to check her beloved cache of honeybees. She’s the last of the Macedonian wild beekeepers and lives alone with her ailing mother on a farm unspoiled by electricity or running water. She survives by selling small-batch honey in a Skopje market, a mere four-hour walk away. Her peace is happily broken by the arrival of new neighbours, their herd of cattle and seven kids. Sumptuously filmed over three years, this extraordinary debut fable imparts a timeworn message about humankind’s true place in the natural order. – Myrocia Watamaniuk, Hot Docs

Reviews

The opening minutes of Honeyland are as astonishing — as sublime and strange and full of human and natural beauty — as anything I’ve ever seen in a movie.
– A.O. Scott, New York Times
