BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD trailer premiere
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 and co-written by first-time filmmaker Benh Zeitlin, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD was awarded top honours at this year’s Sundance Film Festival - winning the Grand Jury Prize for a Drama – and continues to garner critical acclaim ahead of its worldwide cinema release.
This week saw the release of the first poster to promote the film and now we have the premiere of the film’s first trailer. Click here to see the poster and here to watch the trailer for the film that is on many “must see” lists and is likely to be heralded by critics and audiences as “one of the year’s best” following its Australian cinema release on 13 September 2012.
