Isabella Rossellini gets buzzy for Burt's Bees

Everyone’s buzzing about a new Burt’s Bees project starring actor Isabella Rossellini.

The project, “Burt Talks to the Bees” is an educational and interesting series of three short films created by the star for the natural beauty brand.

Rossellini plays a number of different characters, including Burt himself and, of course, the bees.

The Your Olive Branch website reports: “You will meet the bees – the queen, the workers and the drones—so we can all become familiar and sympathetic to their plight.

“Rossellini’s uncanny ability to combine scientific accuracy with storytelling creates a zany, lighthearted approach to environmentalism that piques viewers’ curiosity just enough to care about a disappearing bug.”

Jim Geikie, Burt’s Bees’ vice president of customer strategy and marketing, told the website: “At Burt’s Bees, we’ve always taken Colony Collapse Disorder and the health of the honeybees very seriously.

“The opportunity to work with Isabella on this film project has given us the chance to shed light on this important issue in an incredibly artful and theatrical new way that I think viewers will really enjoy.”
