BENNINGTON - There will be a free presentation of Markus Imhoof's "More than Honey" on Tuesday, Aprill 22, in the Bennington CCV Community Room beginning at 1 p.m. in celebration of Earth Day.

In the past five years, billions of honeybees simply vanished for reasons still obscure. If the bees keep dying, it will have drastic effects for humans as well as more than one third of the human population's food production depends on pollination by honeybees. Their life and death is linked to humans.

Life without the bee is unthinkable. But, between pesticides, antibiotics and mono culture, the queens and their workers are losing their power.

"More than Honey," a new documentary by Swiss filmmaker Imhoof, is a look into the world of bees, showing small family beekeepers (including the beekeeper of ERSTE Foundation beehive, Heidrun Singer) and indus trialized honey farms. It is a film on the relationship between mankind and honeybees, about nature and about the future. Honeybees show that stability is just as unhealthy as unlimited growth, that crises and disasters are triggering evolution and that salvation sometimes comes from a completely unexpected direction.
