This international award-winning film about the wild beekeeper Hatidze offers not only a glimpse of a vanishing trade set in the breath-taking mountainous scenery of North Macedonia but also a strong portrayal of the state of our civilisation.

Hatidze is 55 and lives with her ailing mother in what was once a mountain village. She earns a modest subsistence with her beekeeping and never tries to take more than she needs from the surrounding countryside. Her life starts to radically change when a large family moves in next door and consider her beekeeping skills to be a possible source for their own enrichment. The two filmmakers have successfully created a poetic and modest, but superbly filmed and multi-layered, film which shows what it means to live in harmony with Nature’s code and to fully accept it.

You can also watch English version of the film.
