From Taggart Siegel, director of “The Real Dirt on Farmer John,” comes “Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us?” a multiple-award-winning documentary about the global bee crisis. Taking us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, this engaging and ultimately uplifting film weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world, including Michael Pollan, Gunther Hauk and Vandana Shiva. Together, they reveal both the problems and the solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature. To view the trailer: queenofthesun.com.
