NOTES FROM THE FILMMAKERS

Synopsis

 Markus Imhoof (the director of the Academy Award-nominated film The Boat is Full) directs the documentary, More Than Honey, which tackles the vexing issue of why bees, worldwide, are facing extinction.

With the tenacity of a man out to solve a world-class mystery, he investigates this global phenomenon, from California to Switzerland, China, and Australia. Exquisite macro-photography of the bees (reminiscent of Microcosmos) in flight and in their hives reveals a fascinating, complex world in crisis.

Critic Reviews

“Even if you have no interest in bees I would recommend going to see this film. It’s entertaining simply from a character-based perspective, as well as being visually magnificent. I promise that you won’t see bees in the same way afterward.” – Felicity Muth. Scientific American. More Than Honey: A Review. 1 Sept 2013
