Ciné-ONU, Brussels, 7th June: "The Vanishing of the Bees"

The United Nations in partnership with the Goethe Institute invites you to the screening of 

"Vanishing of the Bees"

On Tuesday, June at 6:30 pm

Even the predators that usually raid the hive for honey stay far away. At first, this occurrence sounds like an urban legend or an exaggerated tale. Except it’s not. The situation is both dire and all too real. Bees are disappearing all over the planet and no one knows why.
