Honeyland Ukrainian premiere

Ljubomir Stefanov, Tamara Kotevska · Macedonia · 2019 · 85’

Original language with English and Ukrainian subtitles

In a deserted Macedonian village, Hatidze, a 50-something woman, trudges up a hillside to check her bee colonies nestled in the rocks. Serenading them with a secret chant, she gently manoeuvres the honeycomb without netting or gloves. Back at her homestead, Hatidze tends to her 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, seven shrieking children, and 150 cows. Soon the family’s patriarch Hussein makes a series of decisions that could destroy Hatidze’s way of life forever.
