Huchi - Honey

Martin Gruber

Abstract


The film “Huchi - Honey” depicts the production of honey from wild bees as well as different aspects of honey use in Central Angola. In the highlands of Central Angola honey is an important means of subsistence and cash income. It is used for cooking and medicinal purposes as well as to brew mead. Honey is deeply imbedded in Chokwe oral tradition, as a way to survive in times of crisis. The film “Honey” was conceived and shot by a group of villagers from the Cusseque area during a participatory film workshop organised for the international research project “The Future Okavango”, investigating resource management in the Okavango Basin.
