Colony | 2008
A look into the world of beekeepers during the recent (and on-going) crisis known as colony collapse disorder. Here, we follow several American beekeepers during 2008 and 2009 as the country's economy spiralled downward. Many keepers blamed insecticides for killing more than one quarter of the bees in the United States, but no one had any evidence. They search for solutions, testify before politicians and confront pesticide manufacturers. Ultimately, the mystery of the colony collapse seems to be something out of science fiction and has dark implications for the future.
