Vanishing of the Bees - Monday Night Movie
Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives.
Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis. Filming across the US, in Europe, Australia and Asia, this documentary examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and mother earth. As scientists puzzle over the cause, organic beekeepers indicate alternative reasons for this tragic loss.
Put simply, the honey bees are vanishing and the implications are awful. Without bees doing their pollination work, vegetables and foodstuffs will disappear.
Taking a piercing investigative look at the economic, political and ecological implications of the worldwide disappearance of the honeybee, the film examines our current agricultural landscape and celebrates the ancient and sacred connection between man and the honeybee. To empower the audience, the documentary provides viewers with tangible solutions they can apply to their everyday lives. Vanishing of the Bees unfolds as a dramatic tale of science and mystery, illuminating this extraordinary crisis and its greater meaning about the relationship between humankind and Mother Earth. The bees have a message - but will we listen?
Questions and answers will follow the movie session with a special GUEST SPEAKER from the Gold Coast Bee Keeper Association.
