Peter Nelson | The Pollinators

Today’s guest is a beekeeper, a cinematographer, and director of The Pollinators. His work on this film has earned numerous film festival awards including the Rob Stewart Eco Warrior Award, the Gaia Prize for Environmental Film-making,  the Best Cinematography Feature Documentary, and more. I was fortunate to be connected with him through Meredith May, author of the Honey Bus. I was also very lucky to be granted access to view the film prior to the national day of screening which takes place on November 6th. I highly recommend this film not just for beekeepers, but for anyone who likes to eat food. The Pollinators highlights the major and the lesser seen flaws in our agricultural system, and how the migratory beekeepers are responding to the ongoing changes and challenges in order to keep our nation's crops pollinated. This was an amazing interview and I am really beelighted to introduce our guest, Peter Nelson.
