Eastbourne Town Hall
Eastbourne, East Sussex , UK
Eastbourne & District Friends of the Earth are going to be holding a special screening of Queen Of The Sun: What Are The Bees Telling Us? at Eastbourne Town Hall in July. As well as the film, there will be guest speakers including Heidi Herrmann, a founder trustee of the Natural Beekeeping Trust, and Andrew Pendleton, Head of Campaigns at Friends of the Earth. The Sun Hive will also be on show before and after the film. This is a pioneering beehive specially developed by natural beekeepers to provide optimum living conditions for honey bees.
Queen Of The Sun: What Are The Bees Telling Us? is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from director Taggart Siegel. 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. The film follows beekeepers from all around the globe as they keep their bees in natural and holistic ways. From Gunther Hauk in the United States to Massimo Carpinteri in Italy, they have unique philosophical and spiritual insights and are striving to keep their bees safe from the pesticides that are gravely threatening wild bee populations.
Eastbourne Town Hall, Thurs 12th July, 18:30.
