The first film to be nominated for both Best Documentary Feature and Best Foreign Film at the Academy Awards, Honeyland is a miraculous portrait of one of the last female bee-hunters in Europe. Hatidze and her ailing mother are the only residents of an abandoned village in the mountains of Macedonia. Venturing out to the surrounding clifftops every morning, she makes a modest living by sustainably harvesting honey from wild hives. Named by New York Times critic A.O. Scott as the Best Picture of 2019, it combines genuinely jaw-dropping nature footage with a timeless (and heart-wrenching) story of resistance.
