Film: More than Honey

We went to Placerville State Theater to see this documentary film. This was from Oscar-nominated director Markus Imhoof. It is a detailed look at the breeding of queen bees, the laboratory process of a bee brainscan, and a hive facing the infection of mites. Our local Beekeeper John Miller is in this film and he showed up to talk about it and honeybees issues. He also explained the 'beekeeper accident' that now has him recovering in a wheelchair.

More Than Honey is subtitled and is full of stunning HD video of honeybees.  It
"tackles the vexing issue of why bees, worldwide, are facing extinction. From California to Switzerland, China and Australia, Imhoof investigates this global phenomenon. Exquisite macro-photography of the bees in flight and in their hives reveals a fascinating, complex world in crisis. " 
 Narrated by John Hurt.
