Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? by Taggart Seigel (2011, 82 min.). In 1923 Rudolf Steiner, a scientist, philosopher, and social innovator, predicted that in 80 to 100 years honeybees as a species 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 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.
