About the film

Beasts of the Southern Wild

Directed by Benh Zeitlin
93 min

Beasts of the Southern Wild tells the story of Hushpuppy, an intrepid six-year-old girl who lives with her father, Wink, in “the Bathtub,” a Southern Delta community at the edge of the world. Wink’s tough love prepares her for the unraveling of the universe, for a time when he’s no longer there to protect her. When Wink contracts a mysterious illness, Hushpuppy goes in search of her lost mother.
