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.

TRU Environment and Sustainability is a sponsor of the Films for Change series.  The movie will be followed by a facilitated discussion.  Admission is by donation.  Doors open at 6:30.

“A remarkable documentary that’s also one of the most beautiful nature films I’ve seen.”

– Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times


“Revelatory! Honey has never looked so delicious. Or so precious.”

  • Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times – Critic’s Pick


“ The feel-good advocacy movie of the year. ”

  • Box Office Magazine


“Visually sumptuous…lovingly shot, near-psychedelic imagery, which serves as an unusually visceral reminder of the rich variety in nature—and what’s at stake if bees bug out for good.

– Village Voice


“Rich, Elegant, Edifying. One of the most beautifully filmed documentaries that I’ve ever seen.”

Hollywood Report Card 

“Must-see film.. Likely the most important documentary of the year.”

  • Current



“A creative exploration of the global honeybee crisis replete with remarkable nature cinematography, some eccentric characters and yet another powerful argument for organic, sustainable agriculture in balance with nature.”

-Alissa Simon, Variety


out of 4 “Fascinating new documentary… an irresistible romance about the essential role that honeybees play in maintaining earth’s fragile ecosystem. A cautionary tale with a hopeful outlook.”

-Jeff Shannon, The Seattle Times
