Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us?
Drama, Documentary
Bees are a barometer of the health of the world, and with the current Colony Collapse Disorder, we are in a state of emergency. Once a sacred partnership, the bond between humans and bees has become a profit-driven exploitation. Here, the unsung heroes dedicated to the survival of bees are highlighted: from poets and philosophers to scientists and shamans, from political activists to biodynamic beekeepers. In 1923, he predicted that the continued practice of artificial queen bee-breeding would bring about the demise of the honeybee. Now, pesticides, herbicides, and genetically engineered plants exacerbate the problem, and the current bee crisis confirms Steiner's dire predictions. Rated No Rating .
