To celebrate the release of director Benh Zeitlin's stunning, apocalyptic film, Beasts of the Southern Wild we are offering you the chance to win a double pass to go see it.
In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the world by a sprawling levee, six-year-old Hushpuppy exists on the brink of orphanhood. With her mother long gone and her father, Wink, a wildman on a perpetual spree, Hushpuppy is left to her own devices on an isolated compound filled with semi-feral animals. She perceives the natural world to be a fragile web of living, breathing, squirting things, in which the entire universe depends on everything fitting together just right.
So when a hundred-year storm raises the waters around her town, her father is suddenly stricken with illness, and fierce pre-historic creatures awaken from their frozen graves to come charging across the planet, Hushpuppy sees the natural order of everything she holds dear collapsing around her. 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 an unstoppable catastrophe of epic proportions.
“Sometimes miraculous films come into being, made by people you’ve never heard of, starring unknown faces, blindsiding you with creative genius. BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD is one of the year’s best films.” Chicago Sun-Times
“One of the most striking narrative films ever to debut at the Sundance Film Festival” THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
