  • Beasts of the Southern Wild

  • Les Bêtes du sud sauvage

In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, six year-old
Hushpuppy exists on the brink of orphanhood. Her mother long gone, and her beloved 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 daddy 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.
