On the island of Hawaii, Manu and her mother collect wild bees to breed disease-resistant colonies, as her father protests on the sacred mountain Mauna Kea against the establishment of a gigantic telescope. Meanwhile, NASA scientists practice living on Mars as the Kilauea volcano quivers fatefully.

MUBI's take

Juxtaposing science and Indigenous cosmology, Sarah Christman’s sensorial documentary is beguilingly embedded in the environmental and spiritual ecosystem of Hawaii. Guided by the buzzing honey bees, this intriguing film probes the interconnectedness between humans and nature, Earth and outer space.
