20,000 Species of Bees 12 rating

Sofía Otero ignites this warm, rich Spanish drama woven from a child’s probing question: who am I?

Drama 2023 128 mins

Director: Estibaliz Urresola Solaguren



Ane takes her children away from their French-Basque home for the summer. She is hoping to kickstart her career as a sculptor, while her eight-year-old child Cocó (a dazzling award-winning performance by Sofía Otero) is inspired by the bees kept by their great aunt to ask questions of who she is and who she wants to be. With its bucolic setting, this is a beautifully understated paean to the inquisitiveness of youth.
