In the mean time, SAB Lost Films is screening Beasts of the Southern Wild this weekend. This film follows 6-year-old Hushpuppy and her father, Wink, in a Louisiana community called the Bathtub; as a storm approaches, Wink imparts survival knowledge to Hushpuppy and she struggles with the guilt that she caused the flooding of the bayou through an impulsive wish. It's a beautiful narrative story with a powerful ending that will stay with you for a very long time.
The connection to the flood was completely unintentional; however, given the theme and timing, all proceeds from ticket and concessions sales will be donated to relief efforts in NY and NJ, where many students call home. Additionally, the Friday 9:30PM showing will feature a 30-minute Q&A with producer Michael Gottwald at the conclusion of the film. All are welcome to attend this unique experience!
We hope to see you this weekend at Parmer.
