More Than Honey

*introduced Thur Jan 30 by CU Prof. Marina Caillaud (Entomology)

Markus Imhoof

Less a hyperbolic exposé than a love song to miraculous creatures, this documentary looks at colonies of honeybees in California, Switzerland, China, and Australia. The film acknowledges the dire circumstances created by the rise of Colony Collapse Disorder, but does so by admiringly showing the details of the lives and work of the honeybees, and man’s struggle in recreating their contribution to the global ecosystem. “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.” (New York Post) Switzerland’s submission for Best Foreign Language Oscar.
