SHELBURNE FALLS — “Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us” is an award-winning documentary about “Colony Collapse Disorder” of honeybee hives and of efforts to preserve them.

The film will be shown by the Buckland Energy Committee on Tuesday at the Arms Library, beginning at 7 p.m. Following the film, local beekeepers Dan Conlon of Warm Colors Apiary in South Deerfield and Daniel Berry of Invisible Cities Apiary will lead a discussion.

Conlon is a full-time beekeeper whose hives provide pollination to Pioneer Valley farms and orchards. Conlon is establishing a Russian honeybee breeding program and is one of a dozen American apiaries selected for this work.

Berry was born in Venezuela and has lived in the United States since 1997. He is an organic farmer and maintains 100 hives.

This is the second in the Energy Committee’s fall film series on topics of environment, sustainability and energy use.
