More Than Honey

"If bees were to disappear from the globe, mankind would only have four years left to live." - Albert Einstein. In "More Than Honey", director Markus Imhoof tackles the vexing issue of why bees, worldwide, are facing extinction. With the tenacity of a man out to solve a great mystery, he investigates this global phenomenon, from California to Switzerland, China and Australia. Exquisite macro-photography of the bees in flight and in their hives reveals a fascinating, complex world in crisis. The film shows a detailed look at the breeding of queen bees, the laboratory process of a bee brainscan, and a hive facing the infection of mites. "More than Honey" is a strange and strangely moving film that raises questions of species survival in cosmic as well as apiary terms.
