Rockies Film Series

Honeyland – Sponsored by Lotic Environmental, 7:00 pm at the Key City Theatre. Tickets $12 purchase online, by phone or at the door. www.keycitytheatre.com, ( 250) 426-7006. This film which is filmed in Macedonia is an exploration of an observational Indigenous visual narrative that deeply impacts our behavior towards natural resources and the human condition. Hatidze Muratova portrays herself, as does Nazife Muratova, her mother. Hatidze is a beekeeper in a seemingly remote area in Macedonia. Actually, it’s relatively close to the capitol city of Skopje. Hatidze is a successful beekeeper. Her success is possible because she is carefully attuned to the bees and their life cycle. All is going well until the arrival of Hussein Sam and his wife Ljutvie Sam. They are the parents of a large, sprawling family. Their livelihood comes from raising cattle, but Hussain soon realizes that he can make additional money by raising bees. However, he’s greedy, and matters start to take a wrong turn. Honeyland (2019) was directed by Tamara Kotevska and Ljubomir Stefanov. It’s an extraordinary Macedonian film considered to be a documentary.

Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice

Sponsored by Alpine Toyota. 7 p.m. at the Key City Theatre. Tickets $12 purchase online, by phone or at the door, www.keycitytheatre.com (250)426-7006. The Sound of My Voice is a musical biography of one of the most successful and versatile female singers of the 20th century — and one of the most successful recording artists of all time. At the height of unprecedented success, Ronstadt, a restless and adventurous artist, turned away from pop music to explore an astonishing variety of musical styles, from American standards to country to classical operetta before circling back to her family roots with traditional Mexican canciones. Withstanding constant pressure from a risk-averse industry, Linda insisted on following her musical instincts. Today Ronstadt has Parkinson’s disease and her magnificent singing voice has been silenced. But rather than letting that voice be lost to history, Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice tells Linda’s story through her own words and music, and by such professional colleagues as Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Aaron Neville among many others.
