"A remarkable documentary that's also one of the most beautiful nature films I've seen." - Roger Ebert

From Taggart Siegel, director of the award-winning documentary THE REAL DIRT 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.
