DOCUMENTARY Is country life more fulfilling than life in the city? Armed with a camera and a warm sense of humour, director Lola Randl goes in search of answers. A few years ago, Lola Randl left the chaos of Berlin behind her and moved to a little village in Uckermark. Now she lives there with her family, realizing projects and at the same time trying to breathe new life into her chosen home, which is declining. Many ex-urbanites are faced with the same situation when they try and realize their country idyll. The Bees and the Birds is a summery portrait of townies stepping into unknown terrain and trying to make the countryside their home.
