In this 19th century, supernatural winter epic, a drunken applejack salesman must go from zero to hero and become North America's greatest fur trapper by defeating hundreds of beavers.

Jean Kayak (Ryland Brickson Cole Tews) finds himself stranded in a surreal winter landscape with nothing but his dim wits to guide him. Against a backdrop of ruthless elements and sinister creatures - all played by actors in full-sized mascot costumes – Kayak develops increasingly complex traps in order to win the hand of a mischievous lover.

Radiant with DIY energy and packed with hilarious gags, Cheslik and Brickson Cole Tews' passion project is at once a quirky spoof on the au sérieux survival genre, a critique of American colonialism and a zany ode to slapstick cartoons like Looney Tunes and Popeye.

"’d do well to satisfy your craving for knockabout lunacy by checking out Hundreds of Beavers, as visionary as any indie in many a moon, and a dam site (ahem) more fun." Los Angeles Times
