The Beehive (Filmmakers in Attendance)

Join us at the Rio Theatre on Wednesday, November 29 for an encore screening  of filmmaker Alexander Lasheras’ buzz-worthy work of Indigenous sci-fi, THE BEEHIVE.

This captivating coming-of-age survival tale follows a family facing an unexplainable cosmic event on their farm. When the young, curious and adventurous Rosemary discovers what she assumes to be a large beehive growing on a branch of one of their trees, she visits it each day to carefully document its unusual growth and soon discovers it’s not what she thought it was. Featuring up-and-coming Indigenous talent and a scenic Canadian landscape, as the hive and threat grows, so do tensions within the community and family. With Meadow Kingfisher, Kaydin Gibson, Stephen JF Walker, Aleen Sparrow.

This gripping family drama from Vancouver-based filmmaker Alexander Lasheras (whose 2016 film CADENCE won the prestigious Audience Award at VIFF) explores themes of identity, loss, and survival in a world forever changed by an alien pandemic invasion. THE BEEHIVE has received widespread support from various organizations, including the Canada Council for the Arts, Creative BC, and the Indigenous Screen Office, with broadcaster presales to CBC, APTN, and Hollywood Suite.

THE BEEHIVE cast and crew will be joining in for a live Q&A following the screening.
