Ljubomir Stefanov & Tamara Kotevska's Honeyland hitting DVD and Blu-ray in February
Ljubomir Stefanov and Tamara Kotevska’s stunning debut feature Honeyland has made cinema history by becoming the first non-fiction feature to be nominated for Academy® Awards in both the documentary and international categories. Since premiering in Sundance 2019, where it took three awards, the film has seduced audiences and critics with its humane and sensitive portrait of one of the last wild beekeepers in North Macedonia. Released theatrically in the UK on 2019, Dogwoof is proud to present this exceptional film to DVD and Blu-ray from 24 February 2020.
In a deserted Macedonian village, Hatidze Muratova lives with her elderly mother, Hatidze is the last in a long line of wild beekeepers, eking out a living farming honey in small batches to be sold in the closest city – a mere four hours’ walk away. Hatidze’s peaceful existence is suddenly interrupted by the arrival of an itinerant family, with their roaring engines, seven rambunctious children and herd of cattle. Yet Hatidze optimistically meets the promise of change with an open heart, offering up her affections, her brandy and her tried-and-true beekeeping advice. But soon Hussein, the family’s patriarch, with seven hungry mouths to feed makes a series of decisions that could destroy Hatidze’s way of life forever.
