In 1923, Rudolf Steiner, a scientist, philosopher & social innovator, predicted that in 80 to 100 years honeybees would collapse. His prediction has come true with Colony Collapse Disorder, where bees are disappearing in mass numbers from their hives with no clear single explanation. In the fall of 2006, newspapers around the United States began to publicize a unnerving phenomenon. Honeybees were a mysteriously disappearing from beehives all around the nation.

The film examines the dire global bee crisis through the eyes of biodynamic beekeepers, scientists, farmers, and philosophers. Featuring Michael Pollan, Vandana Shiva, Gunther Hauk and beekeepers from around the world, this engaging, alarming and ultimately uplifting film weaves together a dramatic story that uncovers the problems and solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature. The film follows colorful, alternative and inspiring beekeepers from all around the globe as they keep bees in natural and holistic ways. From Gunther Hauk in the United States to Massimo Carpinteri in Italy, each has unique philosophical and spiritual insights into their bees and is striving to keep their bees safe from pesticides. Albert Einstein said that, “If bees disappear from the earth, then man will only have four years of life left.” This films shows people who are trying not to make this true.

Zeszłoroczny film na temat problemu był jednak ciekawszy. (piozet)
Znakomity dokument o ekosystemie, o tym, że jesteśmy jak naczynia połączone i małych istotach, od których zależą wielcy. absolutny hit (Allabe8)
