Queen of the Sun @ The MFA - 6/22

6/20/2011 09:08:00 PM
I scheduled my final exam for next Monday. Which means two things.

1. I get my life back in just under a week.
2. I have A LOT of studying to do before now and next Monday.

The folks from Queen of the Sun were nice enough to send me a copy to review once I get a chance - which I'm guessing will be Monday night. For those of you that have a little more free time than I do, I suggest you swing by the MFA starting on Wednesday to check it out.

Winner of numerous International Film Festivals, Queen of the Sun takes us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, weaving together dramatic stories of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world.

Queen of the Sun is a Slow Foods film, featuring Carlo Petrini, Michael Pollan, Vandana Shiva, Raj Patel and Slow Foods beekeeper Massimo Carpinteri in Italy. As Petrini explains in the film, "If we kill all the bees there will be no agriculture. I repeat, no agriculture. Bees are the pollinators that guarantee fruit growth and survival." Pollan says, "The honeybee is important because we depend on it to pollinate 40 percent of our food, a tremendous amount of what we eat."
