We've already sung the praises of Behn Zeitlin’s feature film debut, Beasts Of The Southern Wild, which recently picked up the FIPRESCI prize and the coveted Camera d'Or, at the Cannes Film Festival last month.
Those attending the Los Angeles Film Festival and the American Black Film Festival (both this month) will get to see the tilm for themselves, as it plays at both festivals.
Fox Searchlight will release it for a limited bow on June 27, 2012.
Above and below are 3 new stills released to S&A; you're encouraged to visit its official website at: http://www.welcometothebathtub.com/; as well as its new Tumblr page at http://welcometothebathtub.tumblr.com/.
Winner of the Sundance 2012 Grand Jury Prize as well as the Excellence in Cinematography Award, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD is set in a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee where 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.
