Director’s Statement

Queen Bee is a feminist bar comedy. Have you ever seen how the landscape
at the bars changed? Thirty years ago we didn’t see such a large group of
friends, having fun and getting drunk at a bar. This certainly represents a kind of
breakthrough Social.

Then, on one of my trips I witnessed an unusual scene: a lady, about 60 years old,
enjoying this silent and alone freedom. She looked at a group of girls with pride,
satisfaction. That image haunted me for days. I would have liked to go back
there to talk to her. Of course, I came back, and I never found her again. But it
served as a trigger to write about it. And the script was ready in one afternoon “.
