Sustainability Series: MORE THAN HONEY

Watch Trailer Director: Markus Imhoof
Writer(s): Markus Imhoof and Kerstin Hoppenhaus
Cast: Fred Jaggi, Randolf Menzel and John Miller

Oscar-nominated director Markus Imhoof (The Boat is Full) 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.

“Imhoof’s film is remarkable in its close-up photography. The bees loom large, like creatures from some mutant planet; dangle together in a delicate chain; and fill the air, floating like unusually vivid dust specks.” -Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

“Without any preachiness, this magically beautiful film urges us to take better care of the bees, and honor the irreplaceable things that they do for us.” – Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
