Despite issues with its composition, ‘Honeyland’ is a thoughtful and compassionate exercise in exposing a lifestyle many have long ago abandoned, and one that deserves a place in the public consciousness. Muratova is only one woman, but her attempts to live an ethical life should be taken seriously by everyone that her story reaches.

“Honeyland” and Greta Thurnberg – The new heroes of our time
The two phenomenon have been a subject to a similar bipolar division of reactions in the public where some glorified them, and others criticized them up to a point of hatred. This fact alone, proves that they have already accomplished their goal, they have had an impact on the world regarding subjects which societies, leaders, and people in general tend to persistently ignore.
I hope that we are entering a new era, where we leave behind the glorification of petty subject for plain fun and diminishing current events. Our societies by now have placed the highest values on athletes, famous actors, modern aristocracy… I hope the time has come for ordinary people, “anonymous” like Greta Thunberg and “Honeyland” with the authors and the main protagonist – Hatidze will be the new driving force in societies where with their influence they will cause radical societal changes and become the new heroes of a new era.
Hatizde, the last beekeeper of wild bees in Europe, admires everyone with universal values which we recognize in every culture, religion, philosophical and spiritual doctrine in the world, that most likely have been passed down and perfected from one generation to another. Respect for nature, humility, moderation, and compassion are silently reflected in the background through the entire course of the movie. Hatidze enjoys the companion of the bees, simply loving them, selflessly sharing the honey with them, half for people, half for them, – an extraordinary example of sustainability.
The fact that for the first time in the history of the Oscars a documentary is entering the competition in the category of best international movie, where all of the other nominees are based on fiction, is not surprising. Thanks to the authors for the mastery of making a documentary into art, that you literary take in as a feature film.
It’s also interesting to notice that an unusual moment in the movie is experienced diametrically opposite. Hatidze’s call for the bees, Maat, mat, mat, mat which some viewers interpreted as quote: “When I heard her mumbling something, I turned it off…” While others like the Dutch movie critic Belinda van de Graf experienced that moment as, quote “Hatidze is singing to the bees…”
I personally experienced that moment as utterly poetic, a feeling I would like to explain further. The very call from Hatidze to the bees Maaaat, mat, mat, mat has its roots in the word matica – queen bee (lat. mater, matrix). It’s particularly interesting that Hatidze is usually speaking ottoman Turkish language, but the word matica is also a Macedonian term, indicating an archaic word that surpasses today’s languages. It’s inevitable to ask a simple question. What magic is engaged in the queen, a simple insect, recognizing those words as a friendly call from a human, where according to Darwin’s Theory of evolution these two species are so profoundly different?
Namely, when I first saw the trailer with awe last spring, the moment when Hatidze called the bees with the call Maaaat, mat, mat, mat is a moment that became so familiar and close to me. I suddenly remembered my childhood where in a mountain village in eastern Macedonia, a grandmother explained how they used to keep bees in woven baskets, identical like the ones Hatidze uses. In short, among other things was the recognition of the call to the queen Maaaat, mat, mat, mat quietly gathering the bees around and communicating with them. In that moment the pieces of the puzzle came together and I realized that when Hatidze is singing the “mantra”, she is identifying herself with the queen bee, taking on her role, calling, gathering, communicating just like the queen would, Hatidze becomes the queen bee. An incredible symbiosis between human and nature.
With this story I want to express my admiration of the movie, to the authors as well as to the audience. They have acknowledged the fact that there is no successful or unsuccessful life, no important or unimportant human, no significant or insignificant story, all lives are successful, unrepeatable experiences. This movie casted a light on a seemingly simple life, and uplifted and glorified a supposedly ordinary human, which turned out to be deeply ethical, pure, loving, towards people and nature alike, and simply beautiful, just like the movie itself.
Cinema as an empathy engine.
Fighting with your neighbors. Struggling to care for your aging parent. Plying your craft and trade in the compassionless barreling economy of scale, so different from, and destructive to, the natural economies of being human. It is the same here, there, and everywhere. When there is no social contract their is imbalance and suffering, when the natural order is defended, there is simplicity and sustainability. One of my favorites of the year. Cinema is many things, but at its most beautiful it is an empathy engine.
The History of Humanity
A middle age woman (Hatidze) lives her life caring for bees while selling honey to pay for everyday items and food, and in order to keep the bees alive and thriving has one simple rule “Take half, leave half”, very sound logic please leave some honey for the hive to keep reproduction and producing new honey, no rocket science there just common sense.
One day a migrant family decides to park their trailer in a space next door. This is one of those typical poor country families, mom+dad= as many children they can produce in their lifetime, one new baby every year. And the father takes a look at Hetzide’s work and decides to start his own honey production business. Despite Hetzide’s warnings about “Take half, leave half” he proceeds to take all the honey out of the hive, the bees fight with each other and then die.
When confronted by Hetzide about this destruction of her livelihood, this guy’s answer is “oh I need as much money as possible to feed the many mouths in my family.”
Why don’t they stop to think for a second, maybe if they stop the baby making machine they won’t need to keep destroying everything in their path like locusts. The humanity!!!!!
