Bees - Living for the Queen

Streaming Video - 1998
Rate this:
The film documents the life of a bee colony for the duration of a year. Part of the colony emigrates and becomes a <wild> colony giving an intimate view of the artistically designed beehive and the bee's cleverly organised social life, dividing labour, collecting nectar and warding off enemies. The special feature of this production is the very natural effect of the close-ups that give the viewer the feeling of being within the colony, even for rare events. Without having seen it, who could imagine the queen's <wedding flight> during which the virgin ruler of the colony mates with a drone, a male bee ... all this taking place flying at high speed.
