Two worlds collide in this dramatic documentary which picked up the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2019. Set in the bleak mountains of North Macedonia it focuses on the last female beehunter in Europe surviving in an abandoned village, with only her ageing mother and a dog for company. Hatidze’s beehives provide both food and income, and she cherishes them using ancient, time-tested methods. Profoundly familiar with their habits and needs, she lives in harmony with them and nature – until a disruptive family family suddenly sets up home nearby and adopts beekeeping, then yields to market forces. Honeyland tells a simple story, intimate and timeless, dripping, like the golden honey Hatidze produces, with warmth and emotional insights into the human condition, and our era’s attitude towards the environment.
