THE VANISHING OF THE BEES (U) is showing at Cinema City on Tuesday 27 October, 8.30 Director: George Langworthy. USA/UK 2009. 102 mins.
Honeybees pollinate one third of the food we consume, from apples to tea, but populations across the globe are declining dramatically. The causes are unknown, with theories ranging from poor weather and pests to pesticides.
THE VANISHING OF THE BEES investigates this potentially catastrophic problem through interviews with scientists and beekeepers, in the process asking wider questions about modern intensive agricultural processes. Presented by The Co-operative as part of their Plan BEE programme. Find out after the screening what you can do to help halt the decline.
