Vanishing of the Bees (2009)

Where: The Meeting House

Free and Open to the Public

The Four Corners Arts Center is pleased to present the 2009 documentary film, Vanishing Bees on Wednesday May 18th 2011 at 7:30 p.m. at the Meeting House in Tiverton Four Corners.

Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, the phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing apples, broccoli, watermelon, onions, cherries and a hundred other fruits and vegetables.  Commercial honeybee operations pollinate crops that make up one out of every three bites of food on our tables.

Vanishing of the Bees follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S.  The Film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capitol Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees.

Filming across the US, in Europe, Australia and Asia, this documentary examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and mother earth.
