Einstein And The Honey Bee

The honey bee is a much loved insect that has inspired and provoked us humans in equal measure. This film takes a sideways look at the honeybee and what it means to us, discovering that there are some things that science just can’t predict. Created using hand-drawn animations by Thomas Knowler which echo the labour of the honey bee.

Einstein And The Honey Bee has shown at Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival in New Zealand; at the Ideal Homes festival in New Zealand as part of Environment Network; Squash Nutrition’s L8 Honey Night, Liverpool; Soho short film festival, London and Aesthetica Short Film Festival, York.

Nominated for Best Environmental Sustainability Film.

Produced by Artsadmin and Xenoki as part of What on Earth? in 2011, a series of artists’ films exploring the state of species: at some of the pressures on our planet, issues we face now and futures we may see as a consequence of the way we live today.
