To empower the audience, the documentary provides viewers with tangible solutions they can apply to their everyday lives. Vanishing of the Bees unfolds as a dramatic tale of science and mystery, illuminating this extraordinary crisis and its greater meaning about the relationship between humankind and Mother Earth. The bees have a message - but will we listen?Written by
Vanishing of the Bees is a thoughtful and informative look at the potential reasons behind colony collapse disorder (CCD), in contrast to so many documentaries which are alarmist and sensationalist. As an amateur beekeeper I am interested in bees, of course, but I saw this film to better educate myself on where our food comes from. After watching "Vanishing" I felt that I had gained a common-sense understanding of how a few agricultural practices in the developed world can be strongly linked to CCD. The film also left me wondering why more isn't being done to change our current practices. I think this film is a must-see for anyone interested in food, farming, or bees.
