Kino Club • Honeyland (2019)
October 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A beekeeper in the rural Macedonian mountains strives to maintain the tradition of honest, environmentally friendly beekeeping. Her quiet everyday life is interrupted by the arrival of nomadic beekeepers, who perceive nature primarily as an opportunity for quick profit. The filmmakers spent three years with the heroine of the film, shooting over 400 hours of footage that became the basis of this stunning intimate portrait and powerful environmental appeal. “Honeyland” was the most awarded film at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and the first film ever to be nominated in both best documentary and best international feature film category at the Academy Awards.
