Using the latest macro filming technology, "More than Honey" allows the viewers to look into a honeybee hive and to meet bees eye-to-eye. Searching for the reasons behind the globally observed honeybee decline, the director travelled around the world filming professionals working on and with bees. Among them are scientists from the Centre of Integrative Bee Research CIBER, at the University of Western Australia.

“This is more than a film about honey. This beautiful, tender film should change the way we perceive honeybees forever.” Ella Pawlik, Word of Difference
“Powerful, beautiful and tragic, More than Honey demonstrates the global nature of the problem, and in doing so captures everything from the awe inspiring emergence of the queen, to the death of a colony.” Ian Sadler, Eureka Entertainment
“…delightful, informative, and suitably contemplative study of the bee world and the bee-population crisis, though in the end it does offer enough dewdrops of hope to fill up a bluebell or two.” Stephanie Zacharek, The Village Voice
