By

The Center for Sustainable Living of the Sonoma Community Center and Transition Sonoma Valley will present the international award-winning film, “More Than Honey,” Thursday, Feb. 27, as the second feature in a three-part film series addressing themes of importance.

An opening reception will be held at 6:30 p.m. with refreshments, the film at 7, immediately followed by informal conversation to enhance each film’s message and encourage community dialogue and engagement. The film will be screened in the community center’s Andrews Hall, 276 E. Napa St.

Individual tickets cost $12 for the general public and $10 each for SCC members, which includes admission to the film, refreshments and wine for sale. Net proceeds will support the work of both sponsoring groups.

Local beekeepers Shelly Arrowood and Serge Lebasque will be on hand to join in the discussion following the screening of “More Than Honey,” which movingly depicts the plight of honeybees all over the world. The film explores the phenomenon of colony collapse disorder and seeks to find answers to this perilous condition effecting as many as 50 percent to 90 percent of hives in some parts of the globe.

“More Than Honey” won Best Documentary awards in three European film festivals and is lately making its way around the American circuit of festivals including a runner-up Best Documentary in the 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival.
