Saturday, Jan. 18 at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—The 10th annual Woodstock Film Series at Billings Farm and Museum will feature the film “Honeyland” in HD projection and surround sound, with complimentary refreshments. Reservations are strongly recommended.

“Honeyland” won multiple awards at this year’s Sundance Film Festival for its depiction of Hatidze Muratova, who’s the last in a long line of wild Macedonian bee keepers, eking out a living farming honey in small batches to be sold in the closest city, a four-hour walk away. Hatidze’s peaceful existence is thrown into upheaval by the arrival of an itinerant family, with their roaring engines, rambunctious children and herd of cattle. She optimistically meets all this with an open heart, but soon finds herself neck-deep in complications and competition.

Tickets are $11 adults (16 & up); $6 children (under 16). BF&M members receive discounted prices. For a complete list of screenings and to purchase tickets visit billingsfarm.org/filmfest or call 802-457-5303.

Billings Farm & Museum is located one-half mile north of the Woodstock village green on Vermont Route 12.
