A passionate and persuasive documentary
10 December 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This documentary film tells the importance of bees to the food chain, and explains the disappearance of bees due to Colony Collapse Disorder.

The rapid decline of bees in the world has been widely reported in the media in recent years. It's a relevant topic, as the survival of bees is closely linked to food supply for humans. This film interviews many passionate individuals who keep bees in bee farms, and also scientists who share their expert knowledge and opinion on this topic. The result is a very informative documentary that also moves people into conservation of bees. I'm also impressed by the fact that interviews are done in many countries, giving a panoramic and persuasive view that Colony Collapse Disorder affects the whole world. People need to be better informed about bees, and "Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us?" does exactly that.
