ENCORE SCREENINGS: HONEYLAND

February 28 – March 4
ENCORE SCREENINGS: HONEYLAND

Nestled in an isolated mountain region deep within the Balkans, Hatidze Muratova lives with her ailing mother in a village without roads, electricity or running water. She’s the last in a long line of Macedonian wild beekeepers, eking out a living farming honey in small batches to be sold in the closest city – a mere four hours’ walk away. Hatidze’s peaceful existence is thrown into upheaval by the arrival of an itinerant family, with their roaring engines, seven rambunctious children and herd of cattle. Hatidze optimistically meets the promise of change with an open heart, offering up her affections, her brandy and her tried-and-true beekeeping advice. It doesn’t take long however, before Hussein, the itinerant family’s patriarch, senses opportunity and develops an interest in selling his own honey. Hussein has seven young mouths to feed and nowhere to graze his cattle, and he soon casts Hatidze’s advice aside in his hunt for profit. This causes a breach in the natural order that provokes a conflict with Hatidze that exposes the fundamental tension between nature and humanity, harmony and discord, exploitation and sustainability.
Dir: Tamara Kotevska & Ljubomir Stefanov / 2019 / North Macedonia / 87 min

“Honeyland is both an immersive experience and an undeniably gorgeous reflection on our relationship to nature.” – Monica Castillo, RogerEbert.com

“This elegant film… begins as the intimate portrait of a beekeeper who makes famously good honey, and then expands to become something of a parable.” – John Powers, NPR

“This is one of the best movies of the year… Over and over again while I was watching it, I was asking myself ‘How did they get that shot?’” – Christy Lemire, FilmWeek
