This lovely documentary about a Macedonian beekeeper is subtly narrated and dramaturgically perfect. We follow Hatidze, a woman who for years has cared for her bees in a beautiful valley and sold her honey a train ride away in the capital Skopje. We take part of striking nature footage where she handles her hives with great care and knowledge. She lives in the valley with her dog and her sick mother. When a new family arrives and becomes their neighbors, the evenly balanced ecological system is challenged. In this microcosm Honeyland skillfully captures complex universal questions about globalization, loneliness and how we care for our common resources.
