Hundreds of Beavers (2024, D: Cheslik)



In this 19th century, supernatural comedy, a drunken applejack salesman must go from zero to hero and become North America's greatest fur trapper when he loses his whole operation in a fire and is stranded in the wilderness. Now facing starvation, he must survive in a surreal winter landscape surrounded by Hundreds of Beavers - all played by actors in full-sized beaver costumes. Using nothing but his dim wits, he develops increasingly complex traps to battle the beavers and win the hand of a mischievous lover.

Exclusive U.S. streaming premiere on Fandor begins April 19, 2024.
I've seen a bunch of reviewers I follow mention this and it has come through multiple festivals. Reviews: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/hundreds_of_beavers

Looks pretty wild.

It is available to rent on Amazon and Apple... but will be on Fandor later this week.

It's completely bonkers. Unlike anything I've seen before. It wont be for everyone, and it's a bit too long, but I had a great time with it.
Also, skip the trailer, go in blind. You'll know in 10 minutes if you're gonna finish

It had a run at a local theater a few weeks ago with the filmmaker.

Agree with this. "A" for creativity and effort but probably would've been better if it was around an 80 or 90 minute run time.
