Exploring the buzz about bees’ demise

‘You hear that sound?” asks John Miller, the owner of a big honey corporation, who is one of the subjects of Markus Imhoof’s inventive and powerful documentary, “More Than Honey.” Miller is standing in a sea of blossoming almond trees abuzz with millions of bees. “That’s the sound of money.”

It is also, as the film makes clear, a sound with a precarious future. Descended from a family of beekeepers, Imhoof was disturbed by media reports of a mysterious plague wiping out bee populations. He decided to find out what was going on. After all, as he points out, more than a third of our food supply owes its existence to bee pollination.
