Everyone reading this blog has probably heard about the mass death of the world’s honeybees. Scientists are still debating how much to worry about it; filmmakers, though, are acting.
The new documentary "Colony" tackles the subject, shifting "seamlessly from macroimages of the swarming bees to close-ups of their fretting keepers who are struggling with the devastation," NYTimes’ Manohla Dargis writes. With its "attention to beauty, interview style and even pacing," she compares the film to the works of Errol Morris. It will screen tonight 8:00 p.m. at the IFC Center in New York City. Filmmakers, Carter Gunn and Ross McDonnell, will be on-hand to answer questions afterward. Details: http://www.ifccenter.com/films/colony/
