In a remote Delta community lives a six-year-old called Hushpuppy and her father Wink. Hushpuppy sees everything around her as being filled with poetry and magic. However, her belief that the natural world is in perfect balance within the cosmos is called into question when Wink falls ill, and a catastrophic storm threatens their home. Utilising her immense imagination, Hushpuppy sets forth to repair the very structure of her environment, always humbly knowing: “I’m a little piece of a big, big universe."
This screening will be followed by an informal discussion in the Cafe Bar about the themes explored in Beasts of the Southern Wild
