» You’ll BEE Hearing from Ellen Page

published on June 1, 2011

Super star and Halifax born actress Ellen Page has narrated The Vanishing of the Bees, a documentary that focuses on the mysterious collapse of honeybee colonies around the world. At the premiere screening Page told the audience "These beautiful little beings supply us with one-third of our food, and they are quickly vanishing."

Directed by Maryam Henein and George Langworthy – the movies follows both commercial and organic beekeepers – many of whom believe it’s the use of pesticides that is responsible for the loss of honeybees and blame the Environmental Protection Agency for failing to properly monitor the use. Labeled Colony Collapse Disorder this startling disappearance of so many bees is bound to have an effect on production of our vegetable and fruit crops.

Page spoke of the film's message saying “clearly there are imbalances we've created with our modern industrialized agriculture system and how we're hurting the life that gives us life and have lost that sense of connectedness. Hopefully, despite it being frightening, and it should be frightening, there's an opportunity here to regain that sense of connectedness."

Ellen will soon begin shooting Woody Allen’s new movie Bop Decameron this summer.

The Vanishing of the Bees will be released on DVD (including on Amazon) and VOD (iTunes and other outlets via digital distributor FilmBuff) on June 7.
