This film, like many other noteworthy independent documentaries that aim to educate the public, is necessary viewing for everyone who appreciates the food they eat and the intricate web of life they're a part of. It's also, especially, for those who do not.
Both tragic and inspiring, the call to action of the film is clear: Honeybees are threatened by everything from the pesticides we use on our mono-crops, to the lack of plant diversity established from such crop formations, to climate change and harsh industrial shipping practices. Honeybees, in short, are exhausted and are disappearing at an alarming rate across the world. Vanishing of the Bees highlights that without them, we have no food and the balance of nature is dangerously off. Watch the film to learn and then educate those around you. Honeybees aren't just "pests" in your yard, and they don't just produce honey; they are the basic neurons of our food system, and essentially, of our life.
