Continuing the City of Issaquah’s series of FREE film nights on sustainability, the documentary “Queen of the Sun” will be shown on Thursday evening, December 12, 2013.
What are the bees telling us? Queen of the Sun 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 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.
After the film, a panel of experts, will lead a discussion about the film. Informational tables, as well as refreshments, will be available to attendees. In addition, door prizes will be given away after the movie.
