Win Run-Of-Engagement Passes To BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD In St. Louis

By  |  34 Comments

“They gonna know: that once there was a Hushpuppy, 
and she lived with her Daddy in the Bathtub.”

A spellbinding adventure set just past the known edges of the American Bayou, BEASTS OF THE  SOUTHERN WILD follows a girl named Hushpuppy as she takes on rising waters, a sinking village, changing times, an army of prehistoric creatures and an unraveling universe that she bravely tries to stitch back together through the sheer force of spirit and resilience.

The film, shot on location in the coastal parishes of Louisiana with local non-actors in the lead roles, came to the Sundance Film Festival a hand-made, fiercely imaginative underdog and left a runaway hit and winner of the coveted Grand Jury Prize as well as the Excellence in Cinematography Award. By the time that happened, the fictional “Bathtub” – a fantastical bayou neverland inspired by real Southern Louisiana communities where people persist against all odds to revel in life, no matter what comes – had taken on a life of its own in the hearts of many, unfolding with all the indescribable sights and untamed emotions of a dream in progress.

Much like Hushpuppy’s survival in the midst of raging storms, both in the sky and her heart, the whole enterprise of BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD began as a pipe dream that became possible only through the commitment of a strongly united community. For director and co-writer Benh Zeitlin, who makes his feature debut after a series of award-winning shorts, it started with a question that had been on his mind for a long time: why do people stay in the places they love, with the people they love, even when they know big trouble is on the way?

Fox Searchlight and WAMG invite you to enter for your chance to win Run-Of-Engagement passes to BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD in St. Louis.

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.

Directed by Benh Zeitlin with a screenplay by Lucy Alibar and Benh Zeitlin, the film is based on the stage play “Juicy and Delicious” by Lucy Alibar.

    I believe it was called Glory At Sea.

    I’ve been hearing about Beasts of the Southern Wild all year long have been nearly salivating at the thought of finally seeing what so many of my favorite critics have hailed as one of the best movie’s they’ve seen in years. It truly looks like something original.

    Did you know that Benh Zeitlin suffered a shattered hip and dislocated pelvis in car accident in March 2008 on the way to Austin, Texas and the screening of his award-winning short film “Glory At Sea” at the South by Southwest festival? Benh was uninsured, and fellow filmmakers soon after staged a benefit to raise money to help his medical expenses. Eventually he made a full recovery.
