Maryam Henein has been dubbed "the Erin Brockovich of the Bee Word." She is an investigative journalist, activist, functional medicine coach, filmmaker and entrepreneur. She directed the documentary Vanishing of the Bees narrated by Ellen Page.
Early life and education
Henein is a native of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She interviewed documentarian Morgan Spurlock for Penthouse, and also produced documentaries for the UK’s September Films on subjects that include pimps, drug dealers and porn stars in the Los Angeles area. She was also part of First Apartment, a reality show webcast in the late 1990s and early 2000s on the now-defunct website crushedplanet.com, produced by Joe and Harry Gantz of Taxicab Confessions.
Following a near-fatal pedestrian versus car crash in 2002 in which she was dragged for 49 feet, broke her leg, vertebrae, and several ribs and had to have a titanium rod inserted, she researched issues of health and nutrition to help her in her recovery and became aware of colony collapse disorder.
Vanishing of the Bees
Of Bees & Men
Henein continues to work on projects involving bees and contamination of the food supply. She is working on a memoir titled Of Bees & Men and launched a year-long Save the Bees campaign in June 2014.
