From a distance - beekeeping has looked the same for hundreds of years, and serves as an example of a harmonious relationship between man and nature. As one of the beekeepers in "The Last beekeeper" puts it - "Bees are here to serve and to help. They make enough honey for themselves and everyone else too"
But look closer, and things begin to feel very different.
As the film begins to unravel the mystery of the disappearing bees, this calm begins to give way to a mechanical eeriness. The trucks criss crossing the highway, the mechanization of honey and beekeeping, and the changing nature of agriculture are all reflected in a jarring editing style, soundtrack and shot choices as the film progresses.
