Watching Haron reaching the honey comb is a sight to be seen in the Andaman Sea.

The Honey Hunting is a short ethnographic film about Musa and his large family living on an island in the Andaman Sea, a part of Thailand. The island has, in just a few short years, become a popular destination for tourists. The family lives on the seaward side in one of the few villages where Westerners have not yet come to stay. But with the cost of living going up and the fish harvest going down the family is forced to find other ways to get by. In the film we accompany Musa and his sons into the jungle on a honey collecting expedition. But reaching the hive and its honeycomb high in a tree - and dealing with its angry tenants - is a skilled and risky business; a sight to be seen.
