HONEYLAND is a marvel of a documentary. It has no narration because it doesn’t need any. The characters and story are clear just as shown. Brilliantly made film.
It follows a woman, Haditze, living with her octogenarian mother on a hillside farm of rocky ruins, scrubby grass and bony trees just outside of Skopje, Macedonia.
There she uses ancient beekeeping traditions to harvest honey from wild hives for sale in the local markets. She respects and even loves the bees, always leaving half the honey behind so the hive cam thrive.
When Hussein arrives as a new neighbor he brings with him a small herd of skinny cattle, many chickens and a loud, boorish clan of a family. Hussein notices Haditze’s beekeeping methods and decides he can gather honey too.
Yet Hussein has no respect for the bees and simply takes what he can, leaving disaster in his wake.
Winner of 3 Sundance awards, the most awarded film at this year’s Sundance, HONEYLAND is a story of ancient truths clashing with greed and ignorance.
A stunning feat of filmmaking, gorgeous to see and experience.
ECHO IN THE CANYON

A documentary that charts the birth of the California sound and “will be watched for decades,” FILM THREAT.
In the film, directed by Andrew Slater, Jakob Dylan pursues the Laurel Canyon music scene of the 1960s. He speaks to the artists themselves, including a seemingly endless array of musicians of that era.
The movie is a treasure.
