COLONY at 2:00pm Honey Bee Day @ Cinema Arts Centre. Q&A with L.I Beekeeper Rich Blohm Apitherapy  Talk with Frederique Keller. Plus reception and tastings.  In Colony, several beekeepers around the U.S. cope with colony collapse disorder – the phenomenon that has caused millions of bees to mysteriously disappear, threatening not only the beekeeping industry but our food supply. We admire some documentaries for their artistry and others for their urgency. Rarely do we see a film that combines both of these qualities as impressively as this debut by directors Carter Gunn and Ross McDonnell.

Richard Blohm is a master beekeeper who has been raising honey bees on Long Island for the past 35 years. He maintains 50 hives at 6 different locations across Nassau and Suffolk County and sells his honey at a roadside stand in front of his home and at Capital Health, both in Huntington. He is a member of the Eastern Apicultural Society and past president of the Long Island Beekeepers Club. For the past three years, he has led a beekeeping course for beginners through the Long Island Beekeepers Club. With his support, over 50 Long Islanders have become beekeepers.

Frederique Keller of BeePharm: Apitherapy for Health, is a licensed acupuncturist and medical herbalist who integrates classical homeopathy and apitherapy- the medical use of honey bee products.  She uses bee venom therapy in her private practice as well as all the products of a bee hive including honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly and bee bread. She is president of the American Apicultural Society and lectures internationally, sharing her knowledge of the healing properties of bees. She has been raising bees for over 20 years.
