Queen of The Sun Film Screening
The apiarists and gardeners at the Leland Street Community Garden will be hosting a screening of Queen of the Sun on the eve of National Honey Bee Day, Friday, August 17th - at 8:30P. All are welcome - Bring your own bug spray (DEET-free for the love of bees), refreshments, and something to sit on.
QUEEN OF THE SUN: What Are the Bees Telling Us? is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from Taggart Siegel, 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 engaging and ultimately uplifting film weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world including Michael Pollan, Gunther Hauk and Vandana Shiva. Together they reveal both the problems and the solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature.
