Screening: More Than Honey

Friday | April 25, 2014 | 6:00 pm — 9:00 pm

Martinez Permaculture Center (MPC) | 2421 Center Avenue, Martinez, CA 94553

Oscar-nominated director Markus Imhoof (The Boat is Full) tackles the vexing issue of why bees, worldwide, are facing extinction. With the tenacity of a man out to solve a world-class mystery, he investigates this global phenomenon, from California to Switzerland, China and Australia. Exquisite macro-photography of the bees (reminiscent of Microcosmos) in flight and in their hives reveals a fascinating, complex world in crisis. This is a strange and strangely moving film that raises questions of species survival in cosmic as well as apiary terms.
