Queen of the Sun: What are the bees telling us?
Cinecenta is presenting Queen of the Sun: What are the bees telling us? as part of the international theatrical release of this slow foods film which takes us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, weaving together dramatic stories of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world.
Featuring Carlo Petrini, Michael Pollan, Vandana Shiva, Raj Patel and Slow Foods beekeeper Massimo Carpinteri in Italy. As Petrini explains in the film, “If we kill all the bees there will be no agriculture. I repeat, no agriculture. Bees are the pollinators that guarantee fruit growth and survival.” Pollan says, “The honeybee is important because we depend on it to pollinate 40 percent of our food, a tremendous amount of what we eat.”
