Mesmerisingly beautiful, Honeyland is an unforgettable and extraordinary documentary. Hatidze Muratova lives with her ailing mother in an isolated village without roads, electricity or running water, nestled deep in Macedonia. Using endangered, ancient beekeeping traditions to cultivate honey, Hatidze’s thoughtful care for her craft is thrown into disarray when a neighbouring family try to exploit her practise, disregarding her wisdom and advice.

The most awarded film at the Sundance film festival this year, Honeyland won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize, a Special Jury Prize for Cinematography and another Special Jury Award for Originality.
