In the past five years, buttons of honeybees have simply, vanished for reasons still unknown. If the bees keep dying, it will have drastic effects for humankind; more than one third of our food production depends on. pollination by honeybees and their life and dead are linked to ours. Life without the bee is unthinkable. But, between pesticides, antibiotics and mono-culture, the queens and their workers are losing their power. 'More Than Honey', is a new documentary, by the Swiss filmmaker Marcus Imhoof, looking into the fascinating, world of bees, showing, small family beekeepers (including the beekeeper of ERSTE Foundation beehive, Heidrun Singer) and industrialized honey farms. 'More Than Honey' explores the relationship between mankind and honeybees, about nature and about our future. Honeybees show as that stability is just as unhealthy, as unlimited growth, that crises and disasters are triggering evolution and that salvation sometimes comes from a completely unexpected direction.
