Director: Adriana Otero and Robin Canul
The DC premiere of What Happened to the Bees? Co-presented with the National Museum of the American Indian, the Embassy of Mexico and the Mexican Cultural Institute. This film exposes the deadly effects of regularly used agrochemicals — currently legal in countries like Mexico and the United States — on millions of bees. The documentary explores how the planting of monocultures threatens the health and environment of Mayan beekeeping communities in southeastern Mexico and portrays their fight to protect their land from massive deforestation, groundwater table pollution and climate change.
