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. Taking us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, this engaging and ultimately uplifting 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. Written by
I just turned it off midway through. It is a highly emotional anthropomorphic group of stories regarding bees with a very low information density, and highly biased against modern industry, and farming. If you want to have some spiritual programming with a positive emotional feedback to encourage learning, then this is the movie for you. If you want to learn about bees, I would recommend another movie.
I gave the review an extra star for the Frenchman with the excellent mustache, and one more for the insight into the almond industry. I am sort of surprised so little time was spent on examining the vectors of CCD within that environment. Though, the bias is very clearly against man made things, and focuses on those points to the exclusion of quasi-natural causes, so I am only sort of surprised.
