Ellen Page On The Vanishing Of The Bees

The documentary film Vanishing of the Bees, narrated by Ellen Page, takes a piercing investigative look at the economic, political and ecological implications of the worldwide disappearance of the honeybee. Directors George Langworthy and Maryam Henein present not just a story about the mysterious phenomenon known as Colony Collapse Disorder, but a platform of solutions, encouraging audiences to be the change they want to see in the world. In the video below, Ellen talks about the film:

     The quitting of bees from the industrial matrix that has imprisoned and exploited them is a metaphor for our times. Rudolf Steiner predicted in the 1920s that within 80-100 years bees would face extinction as a result of their industrialization. There is ceaseless prattle about how we will soon have no almonds or peaches. I have yet to hear one bee-keeper suggest a moratorium on robbing bees of their honey, wax or royal jelly, even if only for a year, to give these, nature’s hardest-working creatures, a breathing space. It’s not gonna happen ’cause it’s all about the money.
