Remnants of the Hive
After the apocalypse, 15 year-old Mina is faced with the role of caregiver as her grandfather’s memory begins to deteriorate. By considering parallels between the behaviors of honeybees and humans, this short narrative film explores the distinction between love and obligation and the implications of sacrifice. It stars award-winning American artist, John Torreano, alongside British-Algerian actress, Farah Taleb, and was shot on location in Al Ain and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
It will premiere at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival Court Métrage.
