Watching Vanishing of the Bees. Great doc on bees and colony collapse disorder. Have you seen it? How to help:
The Vanishing of the Bees documentary has been creating a huge buzz around the plight of the honeybee. From narrator Ellen Page's eloquent appeal for honeybees to the directors' successful fundraising effort to create an abridged educational version of the movie , the response from the public has been a testament to how intertwined the relationship between humans and bees really is. So as Discovery continues its Bees on the Brink coverage , and as Vanishing of the Bees prepares for a DVD launch, we thought we'd sit down with directors Maryam Henein and George Langworthy and get their take on what's happening in the world of bees and the fight to save them. As you'd expect, they've got their finger on the pulse, and they're offering TreeHugger readers a nice little kick back too.
