"Honeyland" The astonishing, visually breathtaking, intimate yet epic story of beekeeper Hatidze Muratova. A woman I shall never forget. There is a reason this film is collecting every documentary prize and award. Congratulations to the filmmakers @ljubomirstefanov and @tamarakotevska and thank you for allowing us to travel with you. I will follow you both anywhere. Currently playing in NYC @quadcinema. Check your local listings and I feel certain it will be among the greats nominated for an Oscar and available for wider release or streaming. X, SJ Edited by me. There is much discussion about this post. More specifically choice of country name and what I gleaned from all the interviews and reviews I read after seeing this extraordinary film. My point was to direct as many audiences that I could to this story and exceptional documentary. I take no political position as I feel ill informed and not equipped. I will make it my business to learn more. In turn I hope all will make it their business to be an audience for "Honeyland"
It is interesting to note that even though this announcement is focused on culture and the film as a magical device for telling stories that can make a small country such as ours reach Hollywood circles still even this announcement didn’t manage to pass without a small political shadow casting over it. Apparently, in its original writing, Parker has named our country as the Republic of Macedonia after which she received numerous comments from Instagram users from Greece who requested that she change her original writing and to add North. After this Jessica has changed the post and was forced to apologize publicly to comments.
After several hours, the commenting on her post was disabled and Sarah has published an additional explanation.
