Tonight! QUEEN OF THE SUN Premieres at Brooklyn’s IndieScreen

An invitation from our friends at QUEEN OF THE SUN:

QUEEN OF THE SUN: What are the Bees Telling Us? is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from Taggart Siegel, acclaimed director of the grass-roots hit THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN.

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.

Don’t miss the new Critic’s Choice documentary the New York Times calls “Revelatory!”
QUEEN OF THE SUN: What are the bees telling us? premieres in Brooklyn, NY at the IndieScreen on June 24th-30th! More information at WWW.QUEENOFTHESUN.COM
