MORE THAN HONEY

DIRECTOR: Markus Imhoof - SWITZERLAND

Einstein supposedly said, “If the bee disappears from the surface of the Earth, man would have no more than four years left to live.” All over the world, bees have been dying, and although the causes are still a mystery, one thing is already clear: more is at stake than honey. Seeking answers—and employing incredible cinematography—Imhoof embarks on a journey to meet with people whose lives depend on bees: a Swiss beekeeper living in the Alps, a gigantic almond plantation in California, a bee brain researcher in Berlin, and a pollen trader in China. All report on how the bees are vanishing. The film tells much about bees’ lives—and much about our own. (90 mins.)

Selected Filmography: The Boat Is Full (81), The Mountain (92), Fire in Paradise (97)

In German with English subtitles.

Sponsored by the Consulate General of Switzerland in San Francisco and Chipotle.
