Vanishing of the Bees


Narrated by Ellen Page

Honeybees, a keystone species vital to sustaining our ecosystem, are mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives.  Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing hundreds of fruits and vegetables and provide one out of every three bites of food on your table. Narrated by Academy Award nominee Ellen Page, “Vanishing of the Bees” follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capitol Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees. Special features include: “Honeybee Rescue” – how to remove a bee colony from your property without harming the bees, as well as an animated short entitled Colony Collapse, on the disappearance of honeybees by the film’s animator, Antanas Skukas,
