QUEEN OF THE SUN: What Are the Bees Telling Us? is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from Taggart Siegel, director of THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN. This beautiful, spellbinding film takes the viewer on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive. The film weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world, including best-selling author Michael Pollan, Gunther Hauk and Vandana Shiva.
QUEEN OF THE SUN reveals a haunting prediction by Rudolf Steiner, a philosopher and scientist. In 1923, he predicted that honeybees would collapse in 80 to 100 years due to highly mechanized industrial practices. His prediction has come true and the current crisis is now a global threat to our food system. QUEEN OF THE SUN digs deeply into this devastating crisis and unveils 10,000 years of beekeeping, illuminating the deep link between humans and bees and how that historic and sacred relationship has been lost.
Uplifting, inspiring and entertaining, QUEEN OF THE SUN uncovers the problems and the solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature.
