Bees have been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the last five years. When bee colonies around the world suddenly started dying out, the agricultural industry had to sit up and take notice.
Pollination is still an essential part of food production – around 80% of plant species rely upon pollination by bees. For that reason, Albert Einstein predicted that humans would only live for four years without bees.
This award-winning film by Markus Imhoof explores the possible causes of colony collapse disorder and the efforts to protect bees from this terrifying trend.
More Than Honey is released in cinemas on 6th September 2013.
