In a deserted Macedonian village, 50-something year old Hatidze tends to her bee colonies, handmade hives and her bedridden mother, occasionally heading to the capital to market her wares. One day, an itinerant family installs itself next door, and Hatidze’s peaceful kingdom gives way to roaring engines, shrieking children, and 150 cows. While she is gracious and welcomes the camaraderie, the itinerant family’s patriarch soon makes a series of decisions that could destroy Hatidze’s way of life forever. The most awarded film at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Honeyland is a beautiful, funny tragic and humanist verité documentary to savour.
