Honey weaves a tale of apocalyptic desire. Left alone, a woman has wandered out of the woods and into a desolate kitchen. A strange encounter with a visitor is imagined, forcing the viewer to become an accomplice of her desire.

Utilizing the metaphor of the bees dying around the world as a symbol of female fertility and desire, Honey explores the stress and desire of female fertility, with the expectation of women to procreate.

Without bees the world will become barren – no apples, almonds, avocados, melons. Honeybees form an integral part of the human food chain. Yet, something is causing them to vanish. Climate change. Radio signals. Parasites…..

Female fertility, the stress, desire and expectation of women to procreate hinges on the future of civilization, as does the fertility and future of bees.
