HONEYLAND - the multi-award winning nature documentary (best documentary at Sundance film festival) is coming to German cinemas!
In a remote North Macedonian village 50-year old Hatidze climbs a steep mountain side every day while singing an ancient folk song. Here in the crevices she keeps her bee populations.
One day a nomadic family decides to settle on the adjourning plot of land and the idylle of Hatidzes bee kingdom is disturbed by roaring engines, seven screaming children and 150 cows. Stoically Hatidze keeps going about her daily routine. However Hussein, Pater Familias of the settler family starts making decisions that could destroy Hatidzes way of life forever.
HONEYLAND tells a grandiose and true tale of nature. With their poetic visual storytelling the filmmakers put the bees at the epicenter of a fundamental contradiction of our times.
