Facing the giant bees | SLICE I Full documentary



 In the northwest of Nepal, men scale the vertiginous rock faces of the Himalayas to gather the honey of wild bees. 

These expert climbers risk their lives every spring at an altitude of more than 3,000 metres where they face the giant Apis Laboriosa bees, the biggest species on the planet. 

Moti, a young boy, will climb the cliffs for the first time. He’d like to become a honey hunter like his father. He seems full of confidence, but he must exhibit both patience and endurance to become a true honey hunter.

 His enthusiasm is a good sign for the continuation of this disappearing activity. But will he be able to step into his father’s shoes?
