More than Honey
By: Markus Imhoof
More than Honey aims to allow the spectator to understand the drama at play and highlight the pressures of the global economy on these small insects. Their immense, hairy eyes, as well as their unique carapace, make them look like fascinating creatures that have come from another planet – on the big screen, they appear as large as (and often larger than) men.
In the struggle between bees and the neo-liberal market economy, bee brokers push beekeepers, who respond by pushing bees, to further increase their performance. Bees have become chain workers, a machine expected to function upon the simple push of a button.
