"Taggart Siegel, the director of "The Real Dirt on Farmer John" embarks on a pilgrimage across continents and centuries in his new upcoming film Queen of The Sun. Queen highlights unsung heroes who are dedicated to the survival of bees: from poets and philosophers to scientists and shamans, from political activists to biodynamic beekeepers. Across the globe Queen exposes the long-term effects of modern agriculture, and the industrial practices of beekeeping while sharing the mystery of the honeybee..."
I saw The Real Dirt on Farmer John in a tiny theater in the Marina District that seated about 20 people. It was so tiny but came complete with red velvety floor to ceiling curtains and plush cushiony chairs. I was the only one at the screening. Too bad because it is a great film. You can see it on netflix and I think it is worth it. so I am excited the director is making this film about bees.
