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.

Watch Trailer

"Honeyland sneaks up on you in a quiet yet powerful way."

— Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post

"It's the best kind of documentary -- an eye-opener and a mind-opener."

— Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

"An unforgettable vérité character study and an intimate look at an endangered tradition."

— Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

"Honeyland is both an immersive experience and an undeniably gorgeous reflection on our relationship to nature."

— Monica Castillo,

"The opening minutes of Honeyland are as astonishing — as sublime and strange and full of human and natural beauty — as anything I’ve ever seen in a movie."

— A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"Honeyland is an elegiac and gloriously photogenic tragedy, an environmental parable played out in striking images and stark lessons in the high desert of northern Macedonia."

— Roger Moore, Movie Nation

"While the characters and events are real, the artful design of this film and its allegorical resonances seem to put Honeyland in its own genre – that of a real-life fable."

— Liam Lacey, Original Cin

"Far from a scolding, rub-your-nose-in-it depiction of environmental havoc, this is a tender story about the chaos of abandoning the common good."

— David Ehrlich, indieWire

"This lovely, heartrending movie leaves you marveling at her history and thinking anxiously for her future - and wondering, perhaps, why her example of basic decency has become so endangered."

— Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

"Nimbly and unassumingly, this relatively straightforward anthropological study blossoms into both a socioeconomic commentary on the dangers of globalization and a biblically resonant parable about our relationship with the environment."

— Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm

"As the world continues to suffer ever-increasing mass die-offs of honeybee colonies, Ljubomir Stefanov and Tamara Kotevska’s film reminds us that there’s indeed a better way to interact with our planet—one rooted in patience, tradition, and a true respect for our surroundings."

— Keith Watson, Slant Magazine
