An INVISIBLE NETWORK

Marco is a beekeeper; his life follows the rhythms of apiary, seasons,and atmospheric agents; an everlasting struggle against climate variability and bees’ diseases. His daily gestures show a lifestyle distant from consumerism and market logics.
Marna is a violinist; she usually plays in front of her apiary; she meets an electronic composer who converts bees' sounds through sensors and synthesizers. The two musicians convey their artistic message dialoguing with nature, and composing music for and from bees.
Two stories of dedication, apparently far from each other, finally connect in a conclusive musical performance.
