MORE THAN HONEY (Switzerland / Austria, 2012, 90 min.) 

Washington, D.C. Premiere As Einstein warned: "If the bee disappears from the surface of the Earth, man would have no more than four years left to live." Over the last decade, millions of bees have disappeared worldwide. Is this a one-time anomaly or are we facing total system collapse? Looking for answers and putting the viewer inside the bees’ world, the story travels from the Alps to the Arizona desert, interviewing experts ranging from beekeepers to scientists. What separates this work from earlier films on the subject is that it proposes a possible solution. The filmmaker’s intention is to allow spectators to understand the drama that is at play in a much vaster context: the pressure caused by the continually growing pyramid of the global economy, at the base of which we find the insects. Directed and produced by Markus Imhoof. Produced by Pierre-Alain Meier, Thomas Kufus, Helmut Grasser.

Introduced by Guillaume Scheurer, Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of Switzerland.
