If animal documentaries are your favorite, this one might be for you. The documentary Honeyland from North Macedonia tells the story of a nomadic beekeeper, her neighbors, and nature. The documentary has already won more than thirty awards, and recently, it made history with its Oscar nominations: Honeyland was nominated not only for Best Documentary but for Best Foreign Film as well. The news was met with joy by the filmmakers and other documentary movie makers because documentaries are seldom treated the same as mainstream or popular movies; they’re often limited to the category of Documentaries. After all, no documentary has ever won Best Movie, but perhaps this is the beginning of a trend?
