"The Bathtub has more holidays than the whole rest of the world."
Directed by 19 year-old visionary Benh Zeitlin, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD transports you to a surreal realm, where little girls and mythical animals coexist in a bayou called The Bathtub, all intertwined in the cosmic mesh of the universe.
Talented newcomer Quvenzhane Wallis, who plays the lead character Hushpuppy is determined to explore her world for answers, to satisfy her curiosity, and to make her mark on a world she's only beginning to learn about.
