Burt’s Buzz
Play Trailer

Burt Shavitz is the name and face of the multi-million-dollar personal care products company Burt’'s Bees. But there is more to this story than meets the eye: Shavitz sold his share of the company decades ago, reaping virtually nothing from the company's financial success, yet he remains contracted to promote the brand, traveling the world making public appearances.

Director Jody Shapiro takes us into the reclusive backwoods world of this quirky, absent-minded beekeeper who is still committed to living off the land in Maine, as he has since the 1970s, in a renovated turkey coop with no running water.
