The audience and critically acclaimed QUEEN OF THE SUN: What Are The Bees Telling Us? takes us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive. This engaging and ultimately uplifting eco-film weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the heartfelt 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.
