Join Green Initiatives' 135th film screening, “The Pollinators” a special feature to honour ‘World Food Day’.
The Pollinators is an enlightening documentary with gorgeous cinematography that shows the crucial role bees play in food production. The film does a great job at exposing how fragile our current industrial farming models are. However, it maintains a hopeful tone by discussing innovating agricultural alternatives to protect bees, ways to rejuvenate the soil, and support beekeepers.
ABOUT THE FILM
The Pollinators is a cinematic journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we all eat.
The many challenges the beekeepers and their bees face en-route reveal flaws to our simplified chemically dependent agriculture system. The film features talks with farmers, scientists, chefs and academics that give a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees, what it means to our food security and how we can improve it.
Film screening will be followed by short discussions.
