The Pollinators (Free Virtual Cinema + Live Q&...

Presented by Park City Film at Online/Virtual Space

July 10-24 | Not Rated | 93 min | Directed by Peter Nelson

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. The filmmakers 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.
