The NFSA marks IDAHOBIT (International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia) with a screening of Spanish drama 20,000 Species of Bees: an intimate and considered portrait of childhood gender discovery.

The story centres on eight-year-old Lucía as she begins to interpret the complexities of her gender. Tensions emerge and relationships are strained at the beekeeping family’s remote country home – particularly for Lucía’s mother, who must come to terms with her own revelations.
