|Free Screening of "More Than Honey"|
Documentary tales of life without bees
Sunday 15 September, 7.30pm at St Mary's Church, St Mary's Road. Ealing W5 5RH.
Ealing Transition and Ealing Friends of the Earth will host a screening of More Than Honey, the new documentary by Oscar-nominated Markus Imhoof.
The multi-award winning film tells a provocative yet touching tale of what might happen if our bees became extinct. It takes an in-depth look at honeybee colonies, examining what’s behind the current bee crisis and why we rely on bees for so many things.
“…filled with gorgeous cinematography and fascinating details about bees’ complex behavior and anatomy” Washington Post.
In recent years many species of British bee have been declining, placing our food supply and economy under threat. Research by Friends of the Earth shows that without bees, it would cost the UK at least £1.8 billion every year to hand-pollinate our crops.
After the film, Friends of the Earth will say a few words about their Bee Cause campaign, and beekeepers from Ealing BKA and Ealing Transition Community Bee Project will be on hand for discussion over tea, coffee and cakes.
Free entry (donations to help with the costs of the screening appreciated)
