The Pollinators

This cinematic journey around the United States follows migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honeybees 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 in our simplified, chemically dependent agriculture system. Farmers, scientists, chefs, and academics give a broad perspective about the threats to honeybees, what those threats mean to our food security, and how we can improve it.
