Empire Cinema in Bowral will host a special screening of The Pollinators on November 13 at 6:30pm.
Dr John Hewson will provide the opening address for the acclaimed documentary. Dr Hewson is a former Australian politician who served as leader of the Liberal Party and Federal Opposition from 1990 to 1994 and is now the chair of the Business Council for Sustainable Development and an advocate for regenerative agriculture.
The Pollinators screening will be taking place Nationally across Australia on Wednesday night to inform as many as possible of the plight of the bees and inspire people to consider ways to help the bees while providing a message of hope by way of regenerative agriculture.
The Pollinators is a cinematic journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we all eat. The many challenges the beekeepers and their bees face en route reveal flaws to our simplified chemically dependent agriculture system. The film makers talk to farmers, scientists, chefs and academics along the way to give a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees, what it means for food security and how we can improve it.
