Feast Your Eyes on This Incredible Documentary About Bees Great Documentary, Colony, Explores the Crisis of Bees Through People

by Peter Smith

March 4, 2011

Carter Gunn and Ross McDonnell's feature documentary Colony explores the crisis of bees through people, whose struggles come to serve as a metaphor for those of bees. The story centers on the Seppis, a religious family in California struggling to keep its hives in a collapsing economy, and also explores the various attempts by veteran beekeepers to solve the scientific mystery of colony collapse disorder. It's a gripping family drama in more than one way.

The documentary will be out on DVD March 29 and, in the meantime, you should check out this trailer.
