In a sticky situation
An excellent documentary on the threat currently faced by the world’s bee population. Narrated by director Markus Imhoof, the grandson of a bee farmer in Switzerland, it covers all corners of the world – Australia, the Swiss Alps, a commercial farm in California and human pollination in China. Outstanding camera work allows Imhoof to render the complications of colony life with great precision, with close-ups of hive interiors and bees in flight. A beautifully made and highly informative film that should ensure continued sympathy for this environmental marker.
