Honey for nothing

One of the big hits of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, HONEYLAND is a stunningly shot and immensely engrossing portrait of Hatidze, a single middle aged woman who makes a living gathering honey from wild bees in rural Macedonia. As the camera follows Hatidze running along narrow cliffs and diving into vast swarms of bees, we are transported to a reality so different from our own as to almost seem like a fairytale. As cinematically accomplished as any Hollywood movie, this is a remarkable documentation of a traditional way of life whose days seem to be numbered.
