The prize winner for Best Canadian Feature at the Vancouver International Film Festival and the year’s most widely celebrated debut feature, BEANS sets a poignant coming-of-age story against the backdrop of one of the most tumultuous episodes in recent Canadian history. Partially inspired by director Tracey Deer’s experience growing up on the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory in Quebec, the film centres on a bright girl with the nickname of Beans (Kiawentiio). She’s just beginning to navigate the treacherous waters of adolescence when the tensions in the community around her erupt into a wider crisis in the summer of 1990. Unflinching in its portrayal of the hatred and racism sparked by the standoff between Mohawk communities and government forces at Oka, BEANS shows the impact of these events in ways that viewers won’t ever forget.
