Movie screening: 'Queen of the Sun'

click for larger view. I know it's late notice, but it is very exciting that this award-winning movie will screen this Saturday night in Thurgoona. It's all about bees!

Here's the low-down:

QUEEN OF THE SUN: What Are the Bees Telling Us? is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis. 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.
