More Than Honey review

The bee all and end all

Why are bees dying?

Markus Imhoof’s global hive-burrowing doc doesn’t place blame, preferring to link natural life cycles to unnatural habits.

Travelling from America, where bees hit the road aboard truck convoys, to China, where humans pollinate by hand, Imhoof pursues the economics of beekeeping, a potentially dull subject enlivened by his eye for characters and odd perspectives.

In contrast, astonishing macro-photography captures the bees in all their surreal beauty, presenting a tribute to nature’s “messenger of love” and a warning of what might be lost.
