Four-time Oscar-nominated film about human resilience in the face of environmental disaster. Featuring stunning performances from first-time actors, including 6-year old Quvenzhané Wallis, this film is a brutal but beautiful eco-fairy-tale.

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 orphan hood. 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.  FREE event, no need to book.
