Swarm Season

Swarm Season

A film by Sarah Christman | 2019 | 86 minutes

The extinction of honey bees on a remote volcanic island of Hawaii, indigenous cosmology, and a secret NASA project intersect in this gorgeous, thought-provoking documentary. With an artist’s eye for details and plenty of time for amazement, SWARM SEASON draws fascinating parallels between the micro- and macrocosm, and challenges our understanding of nature, the world and ourselves.


“A cosmic take on the honeybee crisis in Hawaii.”
– J. Hoberman, New York Review of Books
