BOOK & MOVIE CORNER
More Than Honey
“If bees were to disappear from the globe, mankind would only have 4 years left to live.”
These drastic words, supposedly spoken by Albert Einstein, sum up the problems that the global extinction of bees would bring upon us.
More Than Honey is a Swiss documentary, which explores the possible causes of the mass vanishing of bees happening right now. The movie shows the complex of problems beekeepers from different regions of the world are facing and the impact it has, not only on the production of honey. Director Markus Imhoof accomplishes this by using incredible close up footage of bee colonies and by explaining it in a scientific, yet intriguing way.
The DVD will be available at UniSG library from December 19
