Jarful of Bees is a multimedia, immersive short film by critically acclaimed painter Natalie Frank and internationally renowned artist/animator Erin Pollock, set to a new piece of music by award-winning composer Paola Prestini, text by Pulitzer-winning librettist Royce Vavrek, and sung by Metropolitan Opera mezzo-soprano Eve Gigliotti.

Jarful of Bees is a collaboration between these five artists that explores the transformation of memory and the mutability of the familial relationship between a daughter and her father. The film weaves together Frank’s painting and Pollock’s claymation into a dreamlike visual landscape that elucidates the boundary-pushing vocal and electronic score by Prestini and the ethereal voice of Gigliotti, who, alongside Prestini, developed the concept for the work. Jarful of Bees was commissioned by Jill Steinberg and WNET’s ALL ARTS.
