For millions of years insects have been pollinating plants, in exchange for nectar and pollen. This collaboration is a cornerstone in our existence and accounts for one third of all that we eat.
In recent years there has been a dramatic reduction of pollinators, mainly due to pesticides, diseases and changes in the agricultural landscape. If this trend continues a large part of our food production is under threat, and life as we know it will look very different in the future.
This film is a wake-up call about an environmental disaster happening right in front of our eyes. We get to meet scientists, farmers, beekeepers and bumblebee producers from USA, Spain, Slovakia and Sweden.
