The Last Honey Hunter

The Last Honey Hunter

In the mist-shrouded mountains of Nepal, the Kulung people practice an ancient animistic tradition that is under the threat of modernism. The ritual involves climbing rope ladders up sheer cliffs and the harvesting of a certain kind of toxic honey by the world’s largest honeybee. A mind-blowing and visually striking documentary on a psychotropic substance that supports the economy of a whole region.
