LET IT BEE: KEEPER OF BRITISH BLACK BEES D20 A portrait documentary about Matt Pitt, a beekeeper in West Cornwall. Matt does not use beekeeping practices that are unhealthy for the bees. He also tells the story of the British Black Bees, the major threat honey bees are facing - Varroa mites, and the importance of the bee in the ecosystem. This film underlines the threats facing the British Black Bees, as well as Matt's respect and care for bees and how he lives in harmony with British Black Bees. THE LIMESTONE CONFLICT D86 The fight over limestone mining in the ancient Ojnare forest of Gotland, the largest island in Sweden, has become a highly charged, local manifestation of a conflict you find all over the world, a conflict pinning industry and jobs against the environment. In “The Limestone Conflict,” we meet three representatives from different sides of the issue that has divided the island. An activist, a miner, and a local land owner tell their stories, and give us a glimpse into why this has become such a divisive conflict. DESOLATION FOLLOWS D446 Designated as areas of outstanding natural beauty, the English moorlands elicit in us a sense of the wild and untamed. A pristine wilderness, untouched by the advances of civilization. Yet all is not as it seems. TRAPPED C571 In September 2016 I set off to the island of Cyprus, where every autumn the largest massacre of songbirds in Europe takes place. Caught in mist nets and branches covered in glue, their fragile throats slit, bodies boiled and pickled, to be served on the island as an expensive delicacy known as Ambelopoulia. My plan? To join a group of environmental activists that go by the name of CABS, who have been fighting for a decade to put an end to this practice. NATURE CALLS D1016 Nature Call’s is a film in which I wanted to depict how I think we would treat “Mother Nature” as if she was a real person walking amongst us. We have ignored her warning signs for many years now and we are getting closer too the point of no return. Without her, we will perish.
