Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? screens tonight at the Loft Cinema (3233 E. Speedway Blvd.) at 7:30 p.m.
Information from a press release:
Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us? is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from Taggart Siegel, acclaimed director of the grass-roots hit The Real Dirt on Farmer John.
Winner of numerous International Film Festivals, Queen of the Sun takes us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, weaving together dramatic stories of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world.
The film has been reviewed by San Francisco Chronicle, The Seattle Times, The Oregonian, Variety, and Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Roger Ebert will be reviewing the film for the April 29th theatrical release in Chicago. Box Office Magazine calls Queen of the Sun, "the feel-good advocacy movie of the year."
