Join the Tufts Pollinator Initiative for an exclusive screening of The Pollinators, a cinematic journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts, and vegetables we all eat. The challenges the beekeepers and honey bees encounter along the way reveal flaws within our simplified chemically dependent, mono-crop industrialized agriculture system. The filmmakers talk to farmers, scientists, chefs, and academics to provide a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees, what it means to our food system, and how we can improve the way we farm.
