Racked with health issues and personal obstacles, he forged a new path at the age of 77. Seeking out younger musicians and recording a pair of critically-praised new albums, Crosby now sets out to make a mark in a world different from the generation he came to define in the 60s. With unflinching honesty, self-examination, regret, fear, exuberance, and an unshakable belief in family and the transformative nature of music, Crosby shares his often-challenging journey with humor and bite in this documentary film.

This debut feature from documentarians Ljubo Stefanov and Tamara Kotevska was shot over three years by a skeleton crew committed to an intimate collaboration between filmmakers and subject. Honeyland is made with the widescreen sweep of an epic film, visually ambitious and driven by an unexpectedly dramatic narrative and a surprising sense of humor. It’s a tough and tender portrait of the delicate balance between humankind and nature, a glimpse at a fast-disappearing way of life, and an unforgettable testament to one extraordinary woman’s resilience. Watch the trailer.
