The American agricultural industry relies heavily on pollination by honeybees for much of its crops. Because of dwindling numbers in honeybee populations, almond growers in California have to resort to a dramatic solution: importing the bees by truck from all over the country.
In The Pollinators, director and beekeeper Peter Nelson takes you on a fantastic cinematic journey with an incredible story nobody knows is happening.
From California's almond groves to Maine's blueberry fields with many stops inbetween, this fantastic documentary takes you deep into a part of an industry that is invisble to the general public and shows the vulnerability of certain aspects of our agricultral systems.
