The Pollinators -a documentary on Traveling Honeybees

The Pollinators (2020) is an awarding winning documentary presenting a year round journey following migratory beekeepers. Truckloads of beehives travel around the country chasing the folowing seasons of fruits, nuts and vegetables, and many agriculture products. According to New York Times, 'the film presents a thoroughly researched look at the causes and effects of the rapidly declining bee population, essential for the food supply in the United States.' The movie is currently available on Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Kanopy w/Library Card, & Curiosity Stream.
