The last female bee-keeper in Europe must save her bees and return the natural balance in Honeyland, when a family of nomadic beekeepers invade her land and threaten her livelihood. Filmed in Macedonia, this is an exploration of an observational Indigenous visual narrative that deeply impacts our behaviour towards natural resources and the human condition. Honeyland is both an immersive experience and an undeniably gorgeous reflection on our relationship to nature.
PLUS: Q&A and other surprises with Katharine O'Brien local beekeeper, founder of Bee Potion apothecary and woodland wellbeing facilitator. Includes a free spoonful of raw honey from her hives as you enter the cinema!
All profits from the Bee Potion range support the running of their alternative apiary and wellbeing courses for vulnerable Hastings communities.
