What the press is saying about QUEEN OF THE SUN:

“REVELATORY”

“…Siegel buzzes around the globe and deep into the hive… Honey has never looked so delicious. Or so precious.”

- Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times, Critic’s Pick

“EYE-OPENING”

-New York Daily News

“BEAUTIFUL”

- The New York Post

“A HYMN”

“…to nature’s underappreciated pollinators — whose existence has come under threat…making a sunny and optimistic case for why the world is worth saving, via gorgeous imagery and poetic appreciations of the bees themselves. “

- Ian Buckwalter, NPR.org

“RICH, ELEGANT, EDIFYING.”

“One of the most beautifully filmed documentaries that I’ve ever seen.”

-Hollywood Report Card

“IMPASSIONED”

“…a lovely balance between scientific explanation and emotional advocacy…rich subject matter and persuasive presentation make this visually appealing nature documentary worth buzzing about.”

- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

“Visually sumptuous…lovingly shot, near-psychedelic imagery, which serves as an unusually visceral reminder of the rich variety in nature—and what’s at stake if bees bug out for good.”

- Village Voice

“INSPIRING… ONE OF THE BEST FILMS OF 2011.”

- Spirituality and Practice

“The film wows us with its objects of study at work that it creates a sensual awareness of our primary relationship with the bees.”

-Slant Magazine

“MUST-SEE FILM… LIKELY THE MOST IMPORTANT DOCUMENTARY OF THE YEAR.”
