an education with an emotional impact
9 November 2013 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This film portrays another example of the cost of factory farms. The facts are presented without judgment. It seemed to me that the bees are defending themselves against the manipulation of their perfectly organized society. One wonders why we humans think we know better when our own societies are totally out of sync with each other and the earth. Now I understand why vegans do not eat honey. I did not realize how much work the bees have to do in order to make their perfect food. The photography is wonderful and the story is gripping so I recommend it highly. I think everyone should see this documentary so we might have more respect for the way we harvest honey. I admit that I am old and grumpy but this film really made me feel sad. I am glad I saw it and am grateful for the enlightenment.
