The Buzz on Bees
The phenomenon known as bee colony collapse disorder is of universal concern, not only for reasons of curiosity and philosophical inquiry, but because bees are primary and essential cross pollinators and are necessary for our cultivation of food.
Queen of the Sun takes a comprehensive view of the highly specialized role of bees in nature, the history of bees in human culture and commerce, the history of commercial beekeeping and the intricacies and mysteries of life in the hive.
Bees, you will find, are complex and highly accomplished creatures whose colonies reflect a collective goal-oriented discipline and rigorous social organization unparalleled by those of other Earthly creatures, including human beings. Throughout recorded history, bees have been revered, feared and generally misunderstood. In Queen of the Sun, filmmaker Taggert Siegel sets the record straight through on camera expert testimony, including interviews with beekeepers struggling to keep their hives healthy, scientists researching bee problems and food growers who rely on bee colonies. With beautiful cinematography, Siegel takes you inside the hives and reveals their mysteries. You can't help but be fascinated.
