Just saw this very good film about bees: "More Than Honey" by Markus Imhoof. I'm really at a loss for words – which doesn't happen often. So please bear with me when I instead re-post the official description of the film here below.
I basically only have one thing to say: see the film as soon as you can and ponder, ponder, ponder... You won't be happy doing it, but it really provides food for thought in this endless parade of human stupidity that we involuntarily wallow in. Self-destruction appears to be ingrained in the human psyche, period. Because, as the film shows so well, all types of "political" systems cause an equal amount of damage. The official diagnosis would be shortsighted greed. American capitalist or Chinese communist? It's all the same troglodyte causal thinking.
This film not only displays a phenomenal metaphor for human culture in general, but also an endearing and well made insight into a creature far, far more intelligent than human beings.
