For Your Consideration: Honeyland (February 7 – February 13)

Hatidze lives with her ailing mother in the mountains of Macedonia, making a living cultivating honey using ancient beekeeping traditions. When an unruly family moves in next door, what at first seems like a balm for her solitude becomes a source of tension as they, too, want to practice beekeeping, while disregarding her advice. The most awarded film out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, HONEYLAND is an epic, visually stunning portrait of the delicate balance between nature and humanity that has something sweet for everyone.

 

Critic Quotes:

This is one of the best movies of the year… Over and over again while I was watching it, I was asking myself “How did they get that shot?” Christy Lemire, NPR

“Honeyland really is a miraculous feat, shot over three years as if by invisible camera – not a single furtive glance is directed towards the film-makers.” – Cath Clarke, The Guardian

“As an intervention in the conversation around climate change and natural disaster, Honeyland performs the unique feat of uniting agriculture with human culture, to prove that it is really all just culture.” Josephine Livingstone, The New Republic

“Its narrative construction depicts extraordinary tensions and conflicts with a clarity and coherence that a screenwriter might dream of. At the same time, the film’s dramatic power comes at the expense of the reportorial side of documentary filmmaking.” Richard Brody, The New Yorker
