This documentary tells the story of how modern agriculture and pesticides will be
and are responsible for the disappearance of the honey bee and other pollinator
populations and also how these chemicals affect the human population on a big
scale. The viewers will get an inside look of the latest research, the dangers of
pesticides and GMOs and struggle of the scientists who decided to protect our
planet and the life on it even if it meant their career and personal life might get
destroyed by the corporations selling these poisons.

THEMES OF THE MOVIE
• Perseverance through hardships
• Belief is challenged yet strengthened in trying times when you are against almost impossible odds.
• Achievement through community, self-sacrifice, kindness and love.
• Responsibility for your actions as individuals and as a species.
• Never give up.
• “Those who believe an individual cannot drive a change they never met the honey bee.”
• In order to survive we need to adapt and change our ways.
• Humans are part of this ecosystem not above it.
Since 2008 the need for clear, unbiased and honest scientific
information regarding GMO labelling and the effects of pesticides has increased especially among the population of Europe and North America.
This covers an estimated 1.5 billion people, a significant portion of the global population. The awareness of sustainable and green systems and the effects of climate change are a growing priority for consumers. (up to 72% of younger generations claim it to be a priority when shopping) Millennials and those born earlier believe climate change is a result of human activity. Millennials currently constitute the fastest growing audience, up to 2 billion worldwide. They have the buying power now, roughly 27% of the global population. Adding in the younger ( “Greta or Z ) generations, we can raise the target audience half the world population, above 3 billion in total. They are the well informed generation who will shape the future very soon making them a very valuable segment of consumers.

Benbrook spent 18 years (1979-1997) working in Washington,
DC, on agricultural policy and regulation.
During this time, he served for two years (1981-1983) as the director of the Subcommittee on Department Operations, Research, and Foreign Agriculture of the U.S. House of Representatives. He also directed the National Academy o f S c i e n c e s ’ B oa r d o n Ag r i c u l t u r e f ro m 1 9 8 4 to 1 9 9 0 . O n a 1 9 9 3 F ro n t
- l i n e p ro g r a m e n t i t l e d “ I n O u r C h i l d r e n ’ s Food,” which focused on a NAS report on pesticides of which Benbrook was the lead author, he warned that the regulatory limits on pesticides were based on adults, even though they are more dangerous to children. He also suggested that he had been fired from the NAS panel for criticizing the pesticide industry.
Benbrook served as chief scientist at the Organic Center, an organic industry funded nonprofit organization, from 2004 until 2012.
Between 2012 and 2015, Benbrook was the research professor at Washington State University for the Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources. Here
he conducted several studies funded entirely by the organic food industry, who also paid for his trips to Washington where he lobbied for requiring a label on genetically modified organisms.
Dave Chapman runs Long Wind Farm in Vermont and is the Executive
Director of the Real Organic Project. He is a founding member of
the Vermont Organic Farmers. He has been active in the movement
to Keep The Soil In Organic. He is proud to be a current member of the Policy Committee of the Organic Farmers Association. He served on the USDA Hydroponic Task Force. Dave serves in a Farmer position
Walter Farina is full professor at the school of exacts and natural sciences of the university of buenos aires, argentina. He is also superior investigator of the national council of scientific and technical research of argentina, being faculty of the institute of physiology, molecular biology and neurosciences in Buenos Aires, argentina heading the social insect lab. His expertise area is integrative biology.
His studies combine topics of behavioral physiology, neurobiology, animal communication, cognitive and chemical ecology, eco-toxicology and crop pollination using the honeybee as a model study. He also studied behavioural topics in stingless bees and bumblebees of south america. He published more than 90 peer-reviewed articles in indexed journals, participated as a lecturer in more than 70 opportunities. He has participated in four patents of the invention related to topics of precision pollination by bees in commercial crops and this technology is already used as agro-input by pollination services.
Fani Hatjina is a biologist with a PhD on Pollination. Ever since her childhood she has been very curious. This curiosity once caused a small problem with her eyes, when she disturbed a wasp’s nest and was attacked en masse! However, here she is today working with honey bees at the Department of Apiculture- Institute of Animal Science- Hellenic Agricultural Organization ‘DEMETER” (Greece), where she is also the Director of the Institute. Furthermore she is a Council member of International Bee Research Association (I.B.R.A) for almost 10 years now.
Since her employment on the Department of Apiculture she has been interested on promoting the wellbeing of the bees. Main research interests are: effects of pesticides on bee's behaviour and physiology, biological control of diseases and breeding/ preservation of local honey bee populations resistant to varroa.
In 2014 she started coordinating the activities of the APIMONDIA Working group on "Adverse effects of pesticides and veterinary medicines on bees", and currently she serves as President of the Bee Health Scientific Commission of APIMONDIA. She is promoting organic farming and organic beekeeping as well as the close collaboration between farmers and beekeepers. Furthermore she is working to advance apitourism in Greece and in the world!
Professor Dr. Peter Neumann is the Vinetum professor of the Institute of Bee Health. His research and teaching cover all aspects of bee health with focus on behavioural, evolutionary and molecular ecology of honey bees and their pathogens.

In 1987, Séralini obtained his doctoral degree from the University of Montpelier II. He then did four years of research at, among other places, the University of Western Ontario and Laval University Medical Center. Séralini underwent research on corticosteroid-binding globulin, before being appointed a professor at the University of Caen in June 1991, a position he has held ever since. The general area of his lab’s research focuses on the endocrine system, in particular the enzyme aromatase.
His lab has synthesized a number of aromatase inhibitors using equine aromatase as a model. [non-primary source needed] His research has been published in the Journal of Histochemistry & Cytochemistry, the Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology.
In 1997, he became interested in genetically modified organisms, publicly appealing for the precautionary principle to be followed. He was appointed to various government posts, including roles in the French government, the European Union and the European Commission. From 1998 till 2007 Séralini was a member of
the French Biomolecular Engineering Commission which was tasked with evaluating GMO allowances for both the French Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of the Environment.
He made A.S. at Warner Pacific College in Portland in 1977, B.A. in chemistry at Reed College, Portland, in 1979, Ph.D. in biochemistry at Washington State University in 1982, and post-doc at the University of Toronto until 1984. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Environmental Epigenetics published by Oxford University Press.
Educated in zoology and history at the University of Illinois, receiving a BA in zoology and a MA in Medieval Greek history.
