Where have all the honey bees gone? That's the premise of Markus Imhoof's penetrating documentary. The filmmaker travels the globe to investigate German, American and Chinese solutions to the worrying problem.
Making innovative use of cutting-edge technology, this investigation into colony collapse disorder raises more questions than it answers. But its passion, sincerity and intelligence make it a worthwhile contribution to a situation baffling the scientific and bee-keeping communities.
A little too open-ended to satisfy as a piece of scientific discourse, this passionate doc works best as a debate starter. Informative and occasionally scary.
