Einstein once proclaimed that if bees were to disappear from the globe, mankind would soon follow. As the unexplained phenomenon of colony collapse disorder threatens to push honeybees to extinction, the global ecosystem may hang in the balance. This captivating documentary delves into the fascinating world of honeybees by launching an investigation into the mystery surrounding their recent decline. With dazzling cinematography bringing the complexities of honeybee colonies into focus, “More Than Honey” takes us on a worldwide tour with stops in California, China, Switzerland and Australia to examine the possible causes of the species’ decline and ask broader questions about mankind’s place in the environment. In Person: Director Markus Imhoof.
