Detroit Hives follows Tim Paule and Nicole Lindsey, a young couple from East Detroit who are working to bring diversity to the field of beekeeping while creating opportunities for young Detroit natives. It is estimated that Detroit has well over 90,000 empty housing units. In an effort to address this issue, Tim and Nicole have been purchasing vacant lots and converting them into bee farms. Detroit Hives explores the importance of bringing diversity to beekeeping and rebuilding inner-city communities, one hive at a time.

Screening during a special online featured event on April 19, accessible to Virtual Passholders.
