Tracey Deer’s autobiographical feature debut depicts a 12-year-old Mohawk girl forced to grow up quickly during the 1990 Oka crisis. Deer strikingly recreates a turbulent period in Canadian history, thoughtfully illuminating racism and discrimination toward indigenous people, but also the resilience of community and power of activism. With a touching emotional core and a fresh filmmaking voice, the powerful, resonant Beans tells the story of one girl embracing her own power and identity. “If rendering their stories artfully through a camera lens opens just one mind, then “Beans” is already an unmitigated triumph.” – Indiewire
