SATURDAY OCTOBER 17 (SESSION 6)

Director/Producer:Cameron Nielson

Description:

Rewilding Honeybees analyzes our current relationship with honeybees and calls for a radical shift in beekeeping. In the United States, beekeepers are losing 45% of their hives annually, but these losses are not happening in the wild. This film tells the story of a revolutionary beekeeper’s vision to restore honeybees' natural ways of living. This could be a solution to saving honeybees. Featuring: Michael Thiele - the pioneer of rewilding honeybees in North America and Thomas D. Seeley - the foremost researcher of honeybees in the wild.
