The Pollinators, a new documentary film is coming to VIRGINIA on Feb 3rd at 6:30pm.
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. We talk to farmers, scientists, chefs and academics along the way to give a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees, what it means to our food security and how we can improve it.

“The Pollinators does an exceptional job of capturing all of the issues affecting pollinators, and uses the people most affected, and the people doing the most to reduce these issues, to explain, to show and to solve the problems our pollinators are having. A Who’s Who in science, beekeeping and agriculture showing the mess we have created, and the ways to fix it. Well done.”
—Kim Flottum Bee Culture Magazine
“I have seen my fair share of documentary films about agriculture and agribusiness including films about bees. Peter Nelson’s The Pollinators the most well-produced, comprehensive film about bees I have seen...There are many fronts in humanity’s destruction of the natural world. It seems as if people are not getting this particular message: bees go, we go. The Pollinators gets this message across to any and all who will sit down, look, and listen.”
—Don Schwartz. Marin Post
“The gorgeously shot The Pollinators not only provides a warning, but is solutions-based.”
