King Bee is a time-lapse documentary/comedy about contemporary society and times. The collective portrait of the people of Spišský Hrhov – a Slovak village featured in the New York Times – strives to find answers to whether or not ideal community life is still attainable. In the 21st century, our society emphasizes the importance of individual self-realization, thus forgetting about our interdependence. Are we just going to bitterly, yet with admiration, watch the prosperous bee kingdom?
