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.

“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
“The cinematography, by Jörg Jeshel, is spectacularly beautiful, whether the camera is contemplating the Swiss Alps or the interior of a hive, where bees are observed in enlarged close-up.” – Stephen Holden. New York Times. In Fields and Hives, Zooming In on What Ails Bees. 11 June 2013
“What’s really frightening about “Honey” isn’t what a hive of angry bees might do to us, but what we’ve done to them.” – Michael O’Sullivan. Washington Post. More Than Honey Movie Review. 18 Jun 2013
