QUEEN OF THE SUN: What Are the Bees Telling Us? is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from Taggart Siegel, director of THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN. Taking us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, this engaging and ultimately uplifting film weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world including Michael Pollan, Gunther Hauk and Vandana Shiva. Together they reveal both the problems and the solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature.
When & Where
CINEMA CONNECT creates community screenings that inform, inspire and empower audiences. With partner organizations, we produce recurring transformational film series that connect people with compelling films and a shared experience.
WHAT ARE COMMUNITY SCREENINGS? Community screenings are an emerging film distribution model that differs from theatrical and home screening in that the nature of these screenings fosters the discussion of the issues and bonding of local community members. These screenings take place in public venues with attendance between 25 and 300 people and provide incremental revenue for the filmmakers. These screenings also serve to amplify social media efforts and further the word of mouth on the film.
