Reel Grrls Presents: “Beasts of the Southern Wild”
May 15, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Please join us for this timely, award-winning film starring Quvenzhané Wallis, the youngest actress ever to receive a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress.
In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a six-year-old girl, Hushpuppy, exists on the brink of orphanhood. Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural order is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions.
This event will include snacks and a lively, post-film discussion. We look forward to seeing you there!
