From Taggart Siegel, director of the award-winning documentary The Real Dirst on Farmer John, comes a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis. Queen of the Sun takes 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.
"Vital... Colony collapse disorder might be a lesser-known issue than climate change, but it's one that's arguably more critical." - Los Angeles Times.
"Stunning...as soulful as it is scientific, as uplifting as it is alarming. Siegel sets himself and his film apart with exquisite cinematography and awe-inducing visual artistry." - Christine Champ, Film.com.
