The Santa Fe Farmers’ Market Institute is co-sponsoring a special movie event on Saturday and Sunday, May 29 & 30 at Santa Fe’s Center for Contemporary Arts (CCA). If you saw the screening of The Real Dirt on Farmer John, the Institute’s first movie feature four years ago, you’ll want to get a sneak peek showing of Taggart Siegel’s newest film, QUEEN OF THE SUN. Juxtaposing examinations of the fascinating world of bees and of their catastrophic disappearance, Queen of The Sun weaves an unusual and dramatic story that displays the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world.

“Queen of The Sun, like our previous film The Real Dirt on Farmer John, winner of 31 film festival awards, is a film that helps finds solutions to our agricultural system. With Queen of The Sun, I realized the bees are guides; they model collaboration and community, which, in turn, is the standard for the revitalization of a more sustainable world.”

WHERE: The Center for Contemporary Arts, 1050 Old Pecos Trail, Santa Fe NM
WHEN: Saturday, May 29 at 7:45 PM, Sunday, May 30 at 12 Noon.
