Bee Nation is a Canadian documentary produced and directed by Lana Šlezić. The film
follows the inspirational stories of six students in the first-ever First Nations Provincial
Spelling Bee in Canada. Through the eyes of students, parents and educators, we learn
of the challenges and opportunities awaiting the First Nations students in Saskatchewan
as they strive to make it to the National Championships in Toronto; the highs, the lows,
and everything in between. (Canada, 2017)
