Maryam Henein: Filmmaker Advocate for the Bees

Concerned about dwindling bee populations, this journalist undertook a five-year labor of love to educate the public about the harmful impact of pesticides on bees.

Reeling from a near-fatal accident, journalist Maryam Henein looked to natural medicine for healing. The process of investigating treatments led her to refocus her work on covering urgent environmental issues. That led to researching bees, where Henein found inspiration.

Concerned about dwindling bee populations, Henein and co-director George Langworthy undertook a five-year labor of love to educate the public about the harmful impact of pesticides on bees. The result is their award-winning documentary Vanishing of the Bees, which explains the crucial role of bees in the ecosystem, the danger of colony collapse disorder, and what we can do about it.

The film has been screened for thousands of audiences worldwide. And Henein found a path to healing through taking action. “You need to move out of victim mode,” she says. “It’s not what happens to you but what you do with it.”
