Directed by Markus Imhoof
2013; in German and English with English subtitles
91 minutesA panel discussion follows the October 23rd screening.Oscar-nominated director Markus Imhoof (The Boat is Full) tackles the vexing issue of why bees are facing worldwide extinction. He “captures the breeding of queen bees in minute detail, ventures to a laboratory to witness a bee brain scan, and discovers the dangerous prospects of a hive facing the infection of mites. In this latter case, the camera's magnifying power renders the infection in sci-fi terms, as if we've stumbled into a discarded scene from David Cronenberg's The Fly." – IndieWireCommunity partner: Recipe4Success. Screening of this documentary film made possible by a contribution of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Atlanta.
