I have been watching this beautiful trailer nonstop since it dropped earlier today via tweet from Sundance. BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD was actually the first screening I attended while volunteering at the festival earlier this year (read review here). It was nice to relive the vibrant memories through Youtube. I was ecstatic when it was picked up by Fox Searchlight AND won the Grand Jury prize. I’m so glad Fox Searchlight saw the potential of the film, especially since these folks know how to market indies. Directed by emerging filmmaker Benh Zeitlin, BEASTS heads to select theaters June 29th.
America, get ready to meet Hushpuppy!
