Second Sunday Culture Films is an independent documentary series connecting the Wolf Humanities Center’s annual topic to a cultural theme. Borderless, our 2021-2022 theme, is inspired by the Center’s topic of Migration. Join us as we gather cultural perspectives from filmmakers across the world who focused their lenses on Indigenous peoples grappling with borders imposed on their land.

Wild Honey: Caring for Bees in a Divided Land (Tetum Terik) 2019

30 min. Dir. Lisa Palmer

For more than a century, the island of Timor has been split in two by a colonial border. This border has displaced and separated the Tetum speaking people, dividing their land and histories. Timor’s migratory wild honeybees challenge this division. Their migrations are essential to the agricultural and spiritual wellbeing of the people and places who depend upon them.

Speakers: Dr. Lisa Palmer, human geographer and Associate Professor of Environmental Studies, University of Melbourne.
