Over the past 15 years, numerous colonies of bees have been decimated throughout the world, but the causes of this disaster remain unknown. Depending on the world region, 50% to 90% of all local bees have disappeared, and this epidemic is still spreading from beehive to beehive – all over the planet. Fifty years ago, Einstein had already insisted on the symbiotic relationship binding these pollen gatherers to humankind: “If bees were to disappear from the globe,” he predicted, “mankind would only have four years left to live.” MORE THAN HONEY is a fascinating and exquisite cinematic exploration of the relationship between humankind and honeybees and its implications for our future.
