"Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us?" examines the dire global bee crisis through the eyes of biodynamic beekeepers, scientists, farmers, and philosophers. The film unveils 10,000 years of beekeeping, highlighting how our historic and sacred relationship with bees has been lost due to highly mechanized industrial practices. This engaging, alarming and uplifting film uncovers the problems and solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature.

Yes, thanks for sharing this. I signed up for the newsletter and am purchasing the DVD. The trailer is impressive and I applaud the creator's effort to bring this issue to the forefront of national and world attention.

And it was a great movie.  Much of which most of us are very familiar with, but good cinematography and interesting people interviewed.
