Nestled in an isolated mountain village deep within the Balkans, Hatidze Muratova lives with her mother Nazife that is ill and 85 years old. This is a village without roads, electricity or running water but however here, they live there life. She’s a wild beekeeper and her motto is: Take half [of the honey] and leave half [for the bees]”.

On our language, we say Медена земја. It portrays the life of Hatidže Muratova and follows her lifestyle and the changes therein after the arrival of a nomad family in the neighboring house. In fact, the documentary’s area of focus changed course upon the encounter between the filming team and Muratova. This year, 2020, on 28 January, the documentary movie, received wold premiere and the world was amazed by the movie, the lesson that Hatidze gives to the audience and how thankful she is for her bees.

Hatidze’s peaceful existence is thrown into upheaval by the arrival of an itinerant family, with their roaring engines, seven rambunctious children and herd of cattle. I read that her life after filming the movie has changed a lot, she gets a new job, a new house and a new opportunity for a better life, for her, for her mother and for the whole family. Now, you will have the chance to see a short scene of the movie that maybe will be interesting for you so you will wish to watch it at home and see what’s about it!

This will be the end of the post today so have a great night dear friends!
