Hannah Nordhaus, The Beekeeper’s Lament
May 25 2011 7:00 pm, reading at Politics and Prose.

Like an apian version of Johnny Appleseed, John Miller travels the country with his bees, bringing hives of pollinators to farmers who have none. Nordhaus’s book profiles Miller and examines the challenges he and other beekeepers face as the still unexplained Colony Collapse Disorder continues to decimate these essential insects.

I met the director, Taggart, a while back in New Zealand at a screening of
The Real Dirt on Farmer John, and know he is very talented, and am sure that this film is a must-see!

QUEEN OF THE SUN documentary film screening. What Are the Bees Telling Us? is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from Taggart Siegel, director of 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.
