Join PFS & mention BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD to see this movie BEFORE it hits theaters for FREE!
The Philadelphia Film Society prides itself on bringing the best films from around the world to its members in Philadelphia. Well, so far this year we've traveled the world and have found something truly remarkable: BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD.
In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a six-year-old girl exists on the brink of orphanhood. Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural world 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.
The New York Times said that BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD is, "Among the best films to play at Sundance in Two Decades," and they couldn't be more right. Join us for the a MEMBERS ONLY PHILADELPHIA PREMIERE of the film that created history by winning BOTH the coveted Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival AND the Camera d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. This is one event not to miss!
