BEE LOVE

A film by Kristi Jacobson | 2016

 Bee Love, was one of the five films commissioned and selected to screen at the TEDWomen Conference on October 26,2016. This film tells the story of an unlikely company that set its sights on reversing the recidivism statistics by employing the formerly incarcerated and training them to become beekeepers in Chicago’s notorious West Side. We had an amazing experience meeting Brenda Palms-Barber, the founder of Sweet Beginnings, Patricia Jackson and the whole team - and capturing their uplifting and inspiring stories.
