More Than Honey (Director Markus Imhoof) (Switzerland/Germany/Austria)

This
compelling documentary is an in-depth look at honey bees in California,
Switzerland, China and Australia. Markus Imhoof uses state-of-art
filmmaking to illuminate the world’s bee crisis. Colony collapse
disorder has decimated the bee population, with scientists still
uncertain about the exact nature of the deadly phenomenon. Imhoof, who
has a family history of beekeeping, travelled to three continents,
interviewing key culture players and examining the nature of the
calamity as well as discussing possible solutions.

Guest speaker: Dr Scott Hayward of the University of Birmingham, will provide a short background talk on pollinators and climate change to accompany this screening. He is a Lecturer in the School of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, and his research lab investigates the impact of climate change on pollinator decline.
