A Beehive in My Heart is a documentary film that portrays Catalan beekeeper Josep Maria Garcia and his bees. The bees are under pressure due to various forms of human activity. In simple words, Garcia talks about his work as a beekeeper, and about the struggle to keep the bees alive when temperatures rise on Earth and the use of pesticides among farmers increases in scope. The film juxtaposes pictures of the beekeeper and the bees’ work with images of human installations, and animals and plants that live in and off the surrounding land.
