Kino Lorber has acquired all U.S. rights to the documentary “More Than Honey” from director Markus Imhoof (“The Boat Is Full”). The film, which has played at the Toronto and Locarno film festivals, will have its Stateside premiere at the Palm Springs International Film Festival this week. A national release is planned for early spring.

Imhoof’s film is a comprehensive look at the plight of endangered honeybees around the globe and the potential effects of their extinction. The filmmaker is the grandson of a professional beekeeper in Switzerland.

"When we first encountered Markus's film at Toronto, we were stunned by its cinematic impact and profoundly engaged by the poignancy and depth of its message," said Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber, who negotiated the deal with Jean-Christophe Simon, head of Berlin-based Films Boutique. "We now look forward to making a beeline to big screens around the country, where the visual experience of ‘More Than Honey’ will be as uniquely dazzling as predecessors like ‘March of the Penguins’ and ‘Winged Migration.’"
