It is the elegance of its images that sets it apart from previous doomed bee documentaries. The footage of individual animals going about their business is a sight to behold.

There's plenty of information spread around the movie to consider and inspire, but at the very core of More Than Honey is an appreciation for the bee itself, valuing its mystery as it near the precipice of extermination.
