Honeyland 2019 / A Cinematic Achivement And A Difficult Portrayal

Best Film
Unrated
In Macedonian, Serbo-Croatian, Turkish
9.3

The first movie to be nominated to both the Documentary and Foreign-Language Oscar categories, Honeyland is a portrayal of one of the last wild beekeepers in Europe shot over three years. Her life consists of taking care of her ailing mother and harvesting honey according to rules her ancestors taught her, such as only taking half of the produced honey at any one time. These rules are broken when a nomad family arrives. The father, anxious about securing for his children, threatens the beekeeper’s way of life.

There is so much incredible footage in this difficult documentary, from hazardous mountain climbs to a kid helping a cow give birth. But throughout, the question of “how am I watching this?” often comes up, since the footage the filmmakers gained feels unobstructed by anything: it doesn’t feel like there is a camera around.
