Winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2019, Honeyland is a sumptuous, poetic and funny portrait of a female beekeeper in the remote Macedonian countryside.
SELECTED: SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL 2019
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.

This bitter and beautiful Sundance-winning doc focuses on a single beekeeper as though our collective future hinges on her hives,
