The Pollinators

Director: Peter Nelson

(Filmmaker is attending in-theatre festival in Friday Harbor)

Rob Stewart Eco Warrior Award at Vancouver International Film Festival

The Pollinators is a cinematic journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we all eat. The many challenges the beekeepers and their bees face en route reveal flaws to our simplified chemically dependent agriculture system. Beekeepers, farmers, scientists, chefs and academics give a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees, what it means to our food security and how we can improve it. 

Released in 2019

Running time:  92 minutes
