Beekeeping in the End Times

November 22: Film Screening and Book Reading with Dr. Larisa Jašarević

Bremen ist herzlich eingeladen! Bremen is cordially invited to join us!

Two sisters, struggling beekeepers, travel cross-country to film the story of honeybees weathering climate change. Bees in Bosnia and Herzegovina forage in the wilds, far from modern industry and agriculture, on the overgrown frontlines of the 90s war. And yet, their Muslim beekeepers describe a profound ecological disaster, quietly unfolding. Honey is vanishing. What keeps the beekeepers going are Islamic wisdom tales that treat plants and animals as the signs of the times and teach how to care for the world, even on the eve of apocalypse. The sisters’ journey starts from the hives in their mountaintop village and takes them across wilderness and wastelands that stand for the present state of the world at large: beautiful and battered, at once. Ever more unhoneyed.
