6/11/2020 - Virtual Screening of "The Pollinators"

"The Pollinators" is a cinematic journey around the US, following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the crops we all eat. The challenges the beekeepers and their bees face en route reveal flaws to our simplified chemically dependent agriculture system. Farmers, scientists, chefs and academics along the way give broad perspectives about the threats to honey bees, what it means to our food security and how we can improve it.

Following the film, Sustainable Southbury will facilitate a live-stream Q&A panel discussion for all viewers to participate in. Panelists will include:

  • Peter Nelson; director, director of photography, and co-producer of The Pollinators
  • Michele MacKinnon; master gardener and owner of Garden Advice
  • Leslie Kane; Director of Audubon CT-Bent of the River

100 spots available! Registration required via EventbriteA link to the film and to the panel discussion will be provided via email after registration on the day of the event.
