Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us? is a passionate investigation into the honey bee crisis. It features compelling and stunningly beautiful cinematography and tells the tale of Colony Collapse Disorder through expert analysis and a cast ranging from the well-known (Michael Pollan, Gunther Hauk and Vandana Shiva) to the bizarre and charming. This uplifting and enlightening documentary is a must-see for anyone curious about the significance of bees and the impact of their decline on our global food system. Thought-provoking, inspiring, and entertaining - Queen of the Sun is a work of art that is both relevant and delectable.
