Honeyland (Guest Speaker & Members’ Choice)

July 27

This surprise Sundance triple winner accompanies Hatidze Muratova, the last in a long line of wild beekeepers in northern Macedonia, whose peaceful life is disrupted when an unruly family moves in next door. The first film ever to be nominated for Oscars as both best documentary and best international feature film.

“Hatidze’s story is heartbreakingly moving, and needs no heavy editorialising. Her strength, dignity, resilience and humanity carry the film’s truth and weight.” Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald

“Over and over again while I was watching it, I was asking myself “How did they get that shot?” Christie Lemire, FilmWeek, L.A.

Post-screening Q&A with film journalist Leigh Singer
