Winner of two Canadian Screen Awards (Best Motion Picture and Best First Feature Film), Beans is the incredible coming of age story of a Mohawk girl set during the 1990 Oka Crisis.
Inspired by Mohawk director Tracey Deer’s own experience of surviving the crisis as a twelve-year-old girl, this beautiful, raw, and powerful film bears witness to a young Mohawk as she navigates the emotional landscape of adolescence in tandem with the volatility of the armed conflict. We witness the Oka Crisis through the eyes of this tender-hearted, young girl as she is propelled through danger and the stark reality of racial injustice, having to grow up very fast. We see her look to those around her for models of strength and warriorhood and ultimately, to her version within herself. Gorgeously filmed, performed, and directed, this film is a tremendous must-see.
