Quick Overview

A new multi-award winning documentary film by the Swiss filmmaker Marcus Imhoof about the relationship between mankind and honeybees. Narrated by John Hurt.

Description

Details

Einstein once said: "If bees ever die out, mankind will have only four years left to live". In the past five years, billions of honeybees simply vanished for reasons still obscure. If the bees keep dying, it will have drastic effects for humans as well: more than one third of our food production depends on pollination by honeybees and their life and death are linked to ours. Life without the bee is unthinkable. But, between pesticides, antibiotics and monoculture, the queens and their workers are losing their power.

This new documentary is by Marcus Imhoof, whose family have always worked with bees, looks at the fascinating world of bees, showing small family beekeepers and industrialized honey farms. MORE THAN HONEY is a film about the relationship between mankind and honeybees, about nature and about our future. Honeybees show us that stability is just as unhealthy as unlimited growth, that crises and disasters are triggering evolution

Available in DVD and Blu-Ray.

" More Than Honey takes in all the things hurting bees -overbreeding, pesticides, farming practices that upset their life cycles. By the time we see Chinese workers slowly and painfully pollinate trees by hand, unable to perform a fraction of one hive s work, it s clear that Imhoof is issuing a warning. Without any preachiness, this magically beautiful film urges us to take better care of the bees, and honor the irreplaceable things that they do for us. " -Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
