Honeyland - Atlas: Now Streaming Episode 62
No doubt you've heard about the plight of the honeybee over the past several years. "Honeyland" hones in from the macroscopic view of the species to focus on a very personal honeybee story at the micro-level.
This independent documentary shows the story of the last Macedonian wild beekeeper in a remote mountain region of the Balkans. Without giving too much away, tradition is met with "progress" as the film examines the Venn-confluence of conservation, nature, and consumerism.
And stuck in the middle is a woman fighting isolation and trying to keep the old ways alive.
Nominated for two Academy Awards, including Best Documentary Feature and Best Foreign Language Film, this directorial debut of Tamara Kotevska and Ljubomir Stefanov was the most awarded film at Sundance, garnering praise for its cinematography, as well as landing the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize for documentaries.
