SPECIAL ENCORE SCREENING: Nominated for four Academy awards, including Best Picture, Director, and Actress, this fantastical drama portrays a forgotten but defiant bayou community, cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, where a six-year-old girl (Oscar-nominated Quvenzhané Wallis) 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. (Fox Searchlight Pictures)

"An artful, magical film that comes within hailing distance of a masterpiece."
- Richard Corliss, Time
"Sometimes miraculous films come into being, made by people you've never heard of, starring unknown faces, blindsiding you with creative genius... If there is one 2012 movie that seems to have a lock on a best picture nomination, it is 'Beasts of the Southern Wild.'"
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
