Honeyland ★★★★

Honeyland does what documentaries do best: it introduces us to a different way of living, and makes us consider the world we inhabit. It provides real insight into someone's life and a community rarely seen. It is a fascinating reality, beautifully shot, and could easily be a drama. It's about man's impact on his environment. Some have respect for nature and live in harmony, and we see some who don't have that respect and are careless and selfish. As Honeyland goes on, it becomes about despair, loneliness, selfishness, arrogance, and punishment. It could almost be The Turin Horse in documentary form. Maybe the bees die because this is the world they see.
