State-of-the-art film-making illuminates the world’s bee crisis. FREE
screening in the Studio Theatre.
Now in its third year, the UK’s
annual environmental film festival will screen some of the very best
films from around the world, exploring the big environmental issues,
films that inform, entertain, challenge, and inspire.
More Than Honey (Director Markus Imhoof) (Switzerland/Germany/Austria)
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.
