Documentary: The Modest Beekeeper
This indie film project by Amefika Gray features hobbyist beekeeper, PJ Martin. Over the course of a few visits PJ takes Amefika on a journey of the process of honey, from the hive to the jar. You'll not only discover more about the nature of bees, but you'll also come to appreciate the man who cares for them.
Did you know:
1. Bees have empathy?
2. Bees can recognize faces and familiar smells. For example, the bees within PJ Martin's hive recognize his face and smell.
The entire soundtrack include original music by local artists, and even one by the filmmaker. Not only was this film made in NJ, everyone who participated in it are New Jersey natives. This film made it's debut in March of 2017 at the Springfield Free Public Library, NJ. There were nearly 100 people in attendance. We hope you will enjoy it too!
