About the film

"More Than Honey" employs the latest in filmmaking technology to observe phenomena undetectable by normal eyesight; and leaves us with a sense of wonder and awe mixed with alarm and urgency over the fate of the world's bees. Academy Award–nominated filmmaker Markus Imhoof narrates with a personal perspective as the grandson of a professional beekeeper in Switzerland. He travels the world from Europe and the United States to Australia and China, photographing epic agricultural landscapes where bees do their work, and the microscopic honeycombs where they live. On the journey, we meet beekeepers, scientists and agricultural entrepreneurs who share their passion and knowledge. It takes a unique character to devote themselves to bees and all the stings that go with the job. Despite years of research, the precise cause of colony collapse remains a matter of speculation. Is it parasites, fungicides, antibiotics, poor breeding, overwork or all of the above? 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.

Dobry, choć nie idealny. Na najważniejsze pytanie (dlaczego doszło do gwałtownego przyspieszenia ginięcia pszczół) nie odpowiada. Bo tak ogólnie (że to przez człowieka), to ja i bez filmu wiedziałem. (doktor_pueblo)
Świetne zdjęcia, dobre ujęcie tematu. (kwazar)
