FILM: Cuban Bees and the Organic Revolution

22 November 2023

In this documentary, presented in collaboration with Havana Glasgow Film Festival, Laura Rivalta takes viewers on a journey through Havana to hear from beekeepers and farmers about Cuba’s unique beekeeping practices.

Emma Shannon, a researcher on Cuban apiculture based at the University of Glasgow, compares the Cuban experience with the challenges faced by bees and beekeepers in Scotland. Through the exploration of Cuba’s beekeeping traditions, the short film sheds light on the island’s sustainable apiculture.

Economic limitations and restricted access to chemical fertilisers and pesticides since the 1990s have catalysed a shift to agroecology and organic farming nationally. Honey production on the island is predominantly organic and primarily derived from wildflowers, giving it a distinctive flavour. The Cuban government has taken measures to safeguard and promote beekeeping as a vital component of sustainable agriculture.

Followed by a discussion with the film directors Dani Acosta and Hugo Rivalta. 

This event is in association with the Dunkeld and Birnam Climate Café.
