Swarm Season
  • Year2019
  • Duration85 min

On the volcanic island of Hawaii, 10-year-old Manu and her mother collect wild, endangered bees in order to breed disease-resistant colonies. Her father is protesting on the sacred mountain Mauna Kea against the establishment of a gigantic telescope. On the neighbouring mountain, six NASA scientists practice living on Mars, and under the ground and the water, the Kilauea volcano quivers fatefully. If honey bees - one of the most robust and cooperative species on this planet - are threatened with extinction, what future does humanity have on earth?
