An Apple, a Bee and a Tree - Čeberol'ca

Slovenia is a small country with a big heart. Its name has the word ‘love’ in it, and it’s because of love that the story of An Apple, a Bee and a Tree was born. Nature, tradition, heritage and sustainability. All these elements have come together in this film whitch is a new chapter in the story of an old fruit variety, the “sevniška voščenka” (the “Sevnica waxed apple”).

The film presents the sustainable Čeberol’ca product, which is a natural and reusable food wrapper and is recognised as a kitchen utensil. It is also part of the An Apple, a Bee and a Tree package, which won the Most ecological choice 2023 by IGCAT award.
The play is set in a scenographic Slovenian landscape in a traditional house covered with a straw roof. In the distance, hills rise up and vividly outline the countryside. The story focuses on a recipe that includes an old variety of fruit and incorporates it into the use of Čeberol'ce.

In the morning the mother sends the boy to nearby farms to gather the ingredients required for making an apple tart. In a basket of goodies he brings butter, cottage cheese, eggs, honey.. Then they start preparing it together. In the evening, they gather around the farm table with their friends and enjoy. The story demonstrates the various uses of the natural beeswax wrap. Wrapping, covering, protection, multi-purpose accessory.
