WINNER: GRAND JURY PRIZE, SUNDANCE 2019
Filmmakers Stefanov and Kotevska filmed Hatidze and her bees over three years. The 50-something apiarist lives in an isolated cottage with her frail elderly mother. She seems content to tend her bees and make the occasional four-hour trip to market.
One day, a large family and their herd of cattle move into the otherwise deserted mountain valley and her peaceful life is turned upside down. At first, Hatidze enjoys the company, and willingly shares her special brandy and her ancient beekeeping ways. But her trust is betrayed, and all too soon her bees are in jeopardy.
Intimate, humorous and timeless, Honeyland also epitomises the delicate balance between humankind and nature.
