Description

Pre-registration is required, as “seating” is limited. Link to the screening will expire at 6pm on Wed., July 29.

Honeyland is a unique documentary film that follows the life and labors of Hatidze Muratova, a Macedonian beekeeper of Turkish descent who lives in the abandoned village of Bekirlija in the mountain municipality of Lozovo with her mother. Shot over the course of three years, the documentary takes on the feel of a narrative feature as the uneducated female beekeeper deals with a variety of environmental problems, including climate change, the loss of biodiversity, and the exploitation and depletion of natural resources, as well as issues related to consumerism, rural flight, and nomadic Turkish refugees who squat on the adjacent property and quickly become neighbors from hell. The most awarded film out of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, Honeyland is an epic, visually stunning portrait of the delicate balance between nature and humanity that has something sweet for everyone.
