“These beautiful little beings supply us with one-third of our food, and they are quickly vanishing,” Page said at the premiere. “[The message of the film] is clearly here are imbalances we’ve created with our modern industrialized agriculture system and how we’re hurting the life that gives us life and have lost that sense of connectedness. Hopefully, despite it being frightening, and it should be frightening, there’s an opportunity here to regain that sense of connectedness.”

“I’m used to seeing varying colors of honey based on what’s in bloom at any given time, but I’ve never been struck before at how beautiful the different shades of pollen on a single frame can be.” -hive-mind.com

PLAN BEE – by Susan Brackney
“Set aside the infinite spoonfuls of honey, the batches of homemade mead, and so many sweet-smelling beeswax candles and soaps, and I can still say the honeybees have brought an extraordinary sweetness to my life. As I idly watch them fly from flower to flower and from flower to hive, I realize they’ve managed to slow my previously frenetic pace, to make me more appreciative of the workings of the universe, and to return me, at least a little bit, to simpler times. As you get to know the fascinating, persevering, life-affirming honeybee, I hope all these things for you too.”
