GE Free is thrilled to host the first film in the Films for Change series (’cause a change is gonna do ya good!) Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us? is a winner of 10 international film festival awards described by Roger Ebert as ““A remarkable documentary that’s also one of the most beautiful nature films I’ve seen.” The movie is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from the award-winning 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 alarming and ultimately uplifting film weaves together a dramatic story of the heart-felt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers around the world. This spellbinding film explores the long-term causes that have led to one of our most urgent global food crises, illuminating the deep link between humans and bees.
Screening takes place Thursday, January 29, TRU Alumni Clocktower Theatre. Admission is by donation. Doors open at 6:30, movie begins at 7 pm. The movie will be followed by a facilitated discussion.
TRU Environment and Sustainability is a sponsor of the Films for Change series.
