The unexplainable phenomenon known as Colony Collapse Disorder has left landscapes of empty beehives all across America, threatening not only the beekeeping industry but our food supply.

As scientists and beekeepers search for the cause, Colony captures the struggle within the beekeeping community to save the honeybee and themselves.

Colony documents a time of unprecedented crisis in the world of the honeybee through the eyes of both veteran beekeeper, David Mendes, and Lance and Victor Seppi, two young brothers getting into beekeeping when most are getting out. As Mendes tries to save the nation’s collapsing hives, the Seppi’s try to keep their business alive amidst a collapsing economy.

Acclaimed actor/screen writer Mark O’Halloran  (winner of two Irish Film and Television awards for best screenplay. Credits include Adam and Paul, Garage, Prosperity) will host a season of movies at Dublin’s Pantibar from Wednesday 23rd (9pm).

The season is billed as movies every gay movie enthusist should see. The first ten movies include:
