Queen of the Sun
by Taggart Siegel
What are bees telling us? Let’s have a look into their lives. This film is a profound, alternative look into the tragic, global bee crisis. It’s also an engaging and ultimately uplifting film that weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists, and philosophers from around the world including Michael Pollan, Gunther Hauk, Vandana Shiva, and Jacqueline Freeman. The film takes us on a multi-dimensional journey through both the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive.
In 1923, Rudolf Steiner, a scientist, philosopher, and social innovator, predicted that in 80 to 100 years honeybees would collapse. His prediction has come true with Colony Collapse Disorder where bees are disappearing in mass numbers from their hives with no clear explanation. In an alarming inquiry into the insights behind Steiner’s prediction, this important film examines the global bee crisis through the eyes of biodynamic beekeepers, scientists, farmers, and philosophers. On a pilgrimage around the world, 10,000 years of beekeeping is unveiled, highlighting how our historic and sacred relationship with bees has been lost due to highly mechanized industrial practices. This film reveals both the problems and solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature.
