Synopsis

This is a journey into the lives of Spanish honeybee keepers in the extreme south of Spain. Hoffmann shot this film over a period of two years, without crew or even a sound man. Alone with a Super 8 film camera, he joined Oliva’s family, expecting to film the traditional honey production before the expropriation of their farm. But day after day, this burlesque adventure is becoming a road movie across the remotest part of Spain, following Bunuel’s footsteps and his mystical film Las Hurdes.
