Event Details

Food on Film Presents Queen of the Sun
Wednesday, January 23 | 7:00 p.m.

Christy Hemenway, owner and founder, Gold Star Honeybees of Bath, Maine; author of The Thinking Beekeeper

Journey around the world to explore how highly mechanized industrial practices have disrupted our once sacred relationship with bees. Join us for a viewing of the documentary Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? followed by a talk with local bee expert Christy Hemenway.

Queen of the Sun juxtaposes the catastrophic disappearance of bees with the mysterious world of the beehive, weaving an unusual and dramatic story of heartfelt struggles and revealing both the problems and the solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature. Examine the global bee crisis through the eyes of biodynamic beekeepers, scientists, farmers, and philosophers; hear about the personal experience of Christy Hemenway; and taste honey from around the world provided by Follow the Honey. Book signing to follow.

This program is free thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.

More about this season of Adult Offerings at the Museum of Science:

Scientific inquiry exposes nature’s hidden synergies and tests the boundaries of what we think is possible. While many advancements are life sustaining, recent events in the natural world force us to ask how far we should take our technology and how far we should push nature. Join us for a mind-expanding investigation into phenomena that reveal how interconnected we are with the natural world, a journey to help us find our place in nature’s equilibrium.

We are constantly adding to our seasonal lineup of special guest lectures, panel discussions, podcasts, social event, and more. To stay in touch with the latest Museum Happenings, visit
