Honeyland Trailer: NEON Brings Sundance Award Winner to Theatres

We’ve been hearing a lot of great things about the upcoming documentary Honeyland, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year and took home three awards including the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize for Documentary. Directed by Macedonian filmmakers Ljubomir Stefanov and Tamara Kotevska, the film follows a woman who is the last in a long line of beekeepers, living a quiet and simple life in a small village within the Balkan Mountains. Unfortunately, her life and livelihood are disrupted when the outside world starts to push its way in. The movie looks to contain some breathtaking imagery and puts forth an environmental message through a very intimate and personal perspective. NEON acquired the North American rights to Honeyland and will release it in select theatres on July 26th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
