SNFCC Members x Cinobo | Film Club: Honeyland - Εικόνα

Once in a month, with the Cinobo editors’ team, we invite our Members to a monthly dialogue that starts with a film presentation, goes beyond the limits of a "lecture" and expands into an exciting cinematic talk.

Cinema lovers meet at the SNFCC to discuss, share thoughts, and exchange views, starting with the film of the month.

The Film of June: Honeyland (2019)

Nominated for the Best Documentary Film and International Feature Film Oscar Awards, for the first time in the Oscars’ institution history, the film captures the balance within the family, as well as between the man and nature. A reflection on the sustainable development value and ecological awareness.

Summary: A woman utilises ancient beekeeping traditions to cultivate honey in the mountains of North Macedonia. When a neighbouring family tries to do the same, it becomes a source of tension as they disregard her wisdom and advice.

Festival Gem: Best Documentary Film Award | Oscar 2020, Nominated for the Best International Feature Film Award | Oscar 2020, Golden Athena best Documentary Award | Premiere Nights 2019 , World Cinema Grand Jury Prize: Documentary| Sundance Festival 2019, World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Cinematography | Sundance Festival 2019
