Why I Hate Bees, is a comedic journey into a young girl's memories of near death, based on the short story by Nancy Jo Cullen. I play with the way memory races ahead or lags behind the stories we tell and the tendency it has to linger on things we do not mention in our stories. Through optical printing, use of colour, animation, editing and sound, I interpret the memory and point of view of the young narrator -- sometimes touching directly on her story, other times suggesting what she might have experienced, but is not telling.
