Overview

The global mortality rates of honeybees and native pollinators have skyrocketed over the last couple of decades. Considering that our food habits depend greatly on insect pollination, the downturn in the pollinator population is profoundly worrying.

The Pollinators is an award-winning documentary directed by cinematographer Peter Nelson and produced by documentary veteran Sally Roy and director of The Nature Conservancy Michael Reuter. The film investigates why millions of honeybees are dying prematurely every year and warns us of the repercussions of ignoring the problem. The Pollinators instructs us on how we can change our ways to live in a more symbiotic relationship with our six-legged allies to create a more sustainable, healthy future for all.
