Nominated for Two Academy Awards: Best Documentary & Best Foreign Language Film

Honeyland

Not Rated
Directed by Tamara Kotevska and Ljubomir Stefanov
| In Turkish with English subtitles
Starring Hatidze Muratova, Nazife Muratova, and Hussein Sam

96 min | Documentary/Drama | 2019

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, while disregarding her advice. The most awarded film out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, winning the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize, a Special Jury Award for Cinematography, and another Special Jury Award for Originality. Honeyland is an epic, visually stunning portrait of the delicate balance between nature and humanity that has something sweet for everyone.

Who Are We

The Downing Film Center is 501(c)(3) member-supported nonprofit arts organization dedicated to presenting quality films, not always available locally, and providing cinematic programming from around the world in collaboration with and for the benefit of the Hudson Valley’s diverse communities. The Downing is a free-speech theater that neither censors nor endorses.

Where Are We

The Downing is located at 19 Front Street in Newburgh, New York, on the bottom floor of the former Yellow Bird Gallery building. Our entrance is directly across Front Street from Billy Joe’s Ribworks. Free parking is available in the Newburgh–Beacon Ferry lot, on Water Street, and in the lot behind the theater (access via Carpenter Street). On weekdays, you may find a spot on Front Street.

Seating

Although purchasing an advance ticket guarantees you a seat, it doesn’t guarantee you a particular seat or group of seats—seating is first-come first-served.

The Downing has only 55 seats, so arrive early for the best selection. The screening room opens 30 minutes before showtime. Please don’t save seats for members of your party who have not yet purchased a ticket. 

Accessibility

The Downing Film Center is handicapped accessible. If you need our lift and elevator, please let us know in advance. We also ask that you arrive 35–40 minutes before showtime so that we can assist you before the theater gets busy.

We also have assistive listening technology (headphones and closed captioning glasses). Please see our FAQ for details.
