‘Colony’ beekeeping movie at the IFI

23rd – 29th July at the IFI

“One of the most aesthetically beautiful documentaries of the season, as well as one of the more urgent and intelligent,” Variety.

This debut feature from Dubliner Ross McDonnell and Brooklyn-based Carter Gunn penetrates the tight community of North American beekeepers during the ongoing crisis of Colony Collapse Disorder, which has seen the unexplained loss of over a quarter of the United States’ bees in recent years. The impact of this crisis on honey production, on pollination of a vast range of agricultural crops and on the beekeeping community itself is explored through Gunn’s skilful editing and through McDonnell’s breathtakingly beautiful cinematography [more].

The film is being screened on the 23rd, 27th, 28th & 29th July.
