MoreThanHoneyABOUT THE FILM
Markus Imhoof 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. This is a moving film that raises questions of species survival in cosmic as well as apiary terms. This film was the official submission of Switzerland to the Oscars 2014 best foreign language film category.

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

“Spectacularly beautiful”, “fascinating”- New York Times
