More Than Honey Film Screening
The new film More Than Honey hit the big screen in September – supported by Friends of the Earth – and it’s coming here to Dorset!
The multi-award winning film tells the tale of what might happen if our bees disappeared. Oscar-nominated director Markus Imhoof investigates honeybee colonies in California, Switzerland, China and Australia.
Over the past 15 years, bee colonies across the world have been decimated, giving rise to a phenomenon that scientists have coined “colony collapse disorder”. This documentary looks for possible reasons why the bees are dying out and searches for solutions from the scientific community to avert an ecological disaster. More Than Honey is a great accompaniment to Friends of the Earth’s The Bee Cause campaign.
Narrated by one of my favourite actors, John Hurt, it looks at the reasons for the current bee crisis and why we rely on bees for so many things so should be a fascinating night out!
