The most awarded film of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival is an epic, visually stunning portrait of the delicate balance between nature and man. The extraordinary debut feature from directors Ljubomir Stefanov and Tamara Kotevska follows Hatidze, an old lady with a sun-tanned face who lives in the mountains of North Macedonia and makes a living collecting wild honey. When a family moves in next door, tensions arise among the neighbors, because they also want to practice beekeeping, but disregard Hatidze's advice. "The chronicle that Stefanov and Kotevska have distilled abounds in moments of unguarded discovery — moments that can be tender, humorous, rackety or serene." (hollywoodreporter.com)
