Theatrical Release December 2019
Synopsis
An essayistic approach to the rural beekeepers‘ fight for survival and the endurance of a lively culture that has largely disappeared from view. The filmmaker, who has kept bees herself since childhood, follows the daily working life of beekeepers in the countryside of West Mecklenburg.
What is often overlooked, ignored, forgotten, comes into play in Heiner Müller‘s comedy ‘The Resettled Woman’, rehearsed by stage director Armin Petras with actors, farmers, beekeepers in Ludwigslust. The play, which was initially banned in East Germany due to its criticism of agricultural reforms, shows parallels with the problems of today. The film is a polyphonic essay on the creativity of the area‘s remaining inhabitants, and the rural living experiences.

Armin Petras‘ staging of Heiner Müller‘s “The Resettled Woman” among others with Ute Kämpfer, Anja Schneider, Amos Detscher, Marlene Eiberger, Mervan Ürkmez, Christoph Goetz
