10.24.2011 Screening of Queen of the Sun

PCC Seeds of Change Sustainability Club will be screening “Queen of the Sunthis Monday. It’s a great movie on bees, beekeepers, and sustainable agriculture. Free event with food and refreshments

Queen of The Sun follows the voices and visions of underrepresented beekeepers, philosophers, and scientists around the world, all struggling for the survival of the bees.

While other bee films focus exclusively on commercial beekeepers, this film emphasizes the biodynamic and organic communities who have differing opinions from many commercial beekeepers and are overlooked in other films.
