HONEYLAND

Ljubo Stefanov | Tamara Kotevska | Atanas Georgiev

Hatidze lives with her ailing mother in the mountains of Macedonia, making a living cultivating honey using ancient beekeeping traditions. When an unruly family moves in next door, what at first seems like a balm for her solitude becomes a source of tension as they, too, want to practice beekeeping.

UNLIKELY

This category belongs to “Parasite.” If that weren’t the case, the fact that “Honeyland” was nominated in both the Best International Feature and Best Documentary Feature categories would give it a leg up, but then it would still likely be battling “Pain and Glory.”
