About The Film

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 an alarming inquiry into the insights behind Steiner’s prediction QUEEN OF THE SUN: WHAT ARE THE BEES TELLING US? examines the dire global bee crisis through the eyes of biodynamic beekeepers, scientists, farmers, and philosophers. On a pilgrimage around the world, the film unveils 10,000 years of beekeeping, highlighting how our historic and sacred relationship with bees has been lost due to highly mechanized industrial practices. 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.

    Thank you for the post. I am curios and want to learn more. Maybe build my own beehive, if my wife let’s me. :)

  2. Good for you, Epi. I hope your wife lets you. :)

  3. Fascinating about Rudolf Steiner! In pursuing more info, I stumbled across this excellent essay about both the metaphysical aspect of bees and the impact of our artificial cultivation of them —

    From the essay — “Leo Tolstoy, after his own lengthy study of bees, had this to say: ‘The higher the human intellect rises in the discovery [of the bees’ aim], the more obvious it becomes that the final aim is beyond its reach’.”
