Audiences can watch a case study on the successful 2020 film, BEANS, featuring key team members from the film. Inspired by true events, BEANS is about a Mohawk girl on the cusp of adolescence who must grow up fast and become her own kind of warrior during the armed stand-off known as the 1990 Oka Crisis.

Ontario Screen Creator’s Conference (OSCC) presents a live, in-person, and virtual conversation with Beans producer Anne-Marie Gelinas and co-writer, executive producer Meredith Vuchnich. Additionally, a pre-recorded interview with director and co-writer Tracey Deer and Vuchnich will be included in this event.

Beans is a coming-of-age story, inspired by co-writer/director Tracey Deer’s own experience as a 12-year-old Mohawk girl who had to grow up fast during the 1990 Oka Crisis, a 78-day armed stand-off between the Quebec/Canadian governments and the Mohawk who were peacefully protesting a golf course expansion that would desecrate their burial ground.

Beans bowed at TIFF 2020 and went on to achieve Berlin’s Generation Kplus Crystal Bear for best film, the Canadian Screen Award for Best Motion Picture and Best First Feature, TIFF Emerging Talent Award (Deer), TIFF’s Canada Top Ten, second runner-up for TIFF People’s Choice Award, VIFF’s Best Canadian Film, VFCC’s One to Watch (actor Kiawentiio), DGC Discovery Award, and the feature film WGC Screenwriting Award.

ABOUT TRACEY DEER:

She recently returned from Los Angeles, where she was a writing co-EP on the Netflix/CBC series Anne with an E.
