Colony Trailer from losthillspictures. on Vimeo.

Carter Gunn and Ross McDonnell’s feature documentary Colony, explores the crisis of bees through people, whose struggles come to serve as a metaphor for those of bees. The story centers on the Seppis, a religious family in California struggling to keep its hives in a collapsing economy, and also explores the various attempts by veteran beekeepers to solve the scientific mystery of colony collapse disorder. It’s a gripping family drama in more than one way. The documentary will be out on DVD March 29.
