More than Hunny
Albert 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. Seeking answers, the film embarks on a world journey to discover bees and men.
MORE THAN HONEY is the provocative yet touching tale of what may happen to mankind all over the world.
„MORE THAN HONEY is distinguished for its international perspective as Imhoof charts how the bee crisis is being experienced in different parts of the world. In the United States, specialists grapple with a rising population of so-called „killer bees.” In China, farmers now resort to human labour for pollinating crops. In Australia, the island has so far remained free of brood-destroying mites. Certainly a lot more than honey is at stake. Without bees, modern society will be radically different and some question whether it can survive at all. As we grow more detached from nature, we need more films like MORE THAN HONEY.”
