Green Film Festival @ UEA: Beasts of the Southern Wild

Saturday 18 May 2019, 2pm - 3:45pm

Lecture Theatre, Enterprise Centre

Get involved with Green Film Festival @ UEA.

Seen through the eyes of its six year old female protagonist Hushpuppy, this magical film follows the trials and tribulations of a poor community living in the Louisana Bayou in the US. Disaster strikes as a violent storm hits the American Gulf Coast, leaving environmental devastation in its wake. As much as this film resonates with the events surrounding Hurricane Katrina in 2005, it also engages with the wider implications of climate change and rising sea levels. One of the most captivating moments in the film sees Hushpuppy face her fears, which appear in the guise of an army of giant fantasy creatures called the Aurochs, recently released from the previously frozen ice shelves of the Arctic.
