Living in a city of white noise, a young woman receives a mysterious package, the body of a dead bee.

She takes the body and rebuilds it into a hybrid creature, built to survive an uncertain future. Thus begins an ethereal journey into dream, a message sent by a colony of bees.

Filmmaker’s statement

Hive is a culmination of my experience as a beekeeper and cinematographer; an unconscious discovery of co-existing with bees and how the smallest of lives can affect our own.
