The Last Honey Hunter documents one of the few remaining cultures to harvest the wild hallucinogenic honey from jungle cliffs deep in the remote valleys of eastern Nepal. The film follows Maule Dhan Kulung – the last man in Saadi who knows the ancient ways of the harvest – on his last trip to the cliffs. As a young man, he had a powerful dream in which forest spirits called Rangkemi granted him safe passage to collect the lucrative honey. Now he is in his late sixties, unable to continue the harvest – and no one else in Saadi has had the dream.
