SFGFF co-presents: The Pollinators

SFGFF is pleased to co-present The Pollinators at the 18th Annual SF DocFest! This visually stunning and emotionally captivating film tells the crucial story of the role that bees and beekeepers have in the preservation of our land and our way of life. 

Our complex food system relies on the work of bees pollinating our fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Throughout the country, the honey bee population has been decreasing, threatening our agricultural systems and the diversity of our farmland. With the introduction of new and resilient pesticides, increases in large scale monoculture farming, and the influence of corporate interests over the EPA and USDA came the decline of the honey bee. The Pollinators follows beekeepers as they transport colonies of bees across America’s farmland, struggling to meet the demands to sustain our current level of food production. With most of the work of transporting bees being done at night, most of America never sees this integral piece of our food system. Farmers, scientist, and academics offer up perspectives on ways we can change and improve our agricultural systems to establish more sustainable practices that will protect our food diversity and quality of produce for future generations.  -MR
