Bee People Overview:
BEE PEOPLE is a groundbreaking film about bees and the people who keep them.
For 100 million years, bees have provided sustainability on earth… yet these glorious pollinators are facing challenges and fading from our planet. Did you know the honeybee is responsible for one third of the items on your dinner plate?
BEE PEOPLE raises the bar and provides an in-depth look at the people who are facing the challenge on behalf of the bees, making a difference, and urging everyone to join them on a planet-saving mission! Who are these bee people? What compels them to do what they do? And most importantly, what is the solution they propose?
Featuring Gregg McMahan aka “The Bee Guru”: One part rock- star, one part bee evangelist, Gregg is the most passionate member of the Bee People community you’re ever likely to meet. His dissertations on all-things-bees are mesmerizing, entertaining and highly educational.
“Unlike other documentaries that have covered the issue, BEE PEOPLE is decidedly solution-based. The film effectively plays as a sort of call to action for viewers – those eccentric enough – to get stung by the bee bug.”
- The Village Newspaper
“An entertaining and informative glimpse into the life of a unique subculture of humanity.”
– Film Threat
“From the hives to the removal, to the whys and hows of dealing with bees, this is a doc that everyone who’s worried about our planet should see!”
– Rogue Cinema
“Ninety-nine percent of documentaries present the viewer with a global crisis. Almost none of them offer a solution. BEE PEOPLE is among the one percent that show people a simple way to make the world a better place.”
