To empower the audience, the documentary provides viewers with tangible solutions they can apply to their everyday lives. Vanishing of the Bees unfolds as a dramatic tale of science and mystery, illuminating this extraordinary crisis and its greater meaning about the relationship between humankind and Mother Earth. The bees have a message - but will we listen? Written by
As far as educational documentaries go this one hits all the right notes! As a lover of narrative film with an average concern for environmental and social activism, this film left me moved towards action and well informed. The heart of the cause is relayed naturally through a masterful blend of science, history, and spiritualism; allowing the viewer to gather the profound importance of the disappearance of the honeybee, without the "hard sell" of some other political and social documentaries that will go nameless. What the film lacks in masterful camera angles and fancy editing, it makes up for ten fold in heart and well researched information. This is the first documentary that I've seen that has literally changed my life for the better.
