Beasts of the Southern Wild & A Diary for Samuel
Bring something to sit on and whatever you need to stay warm and dry
A Diary for Samuel is a reworking of the classic Humphrey Jennings documentary, A Diary for Timothy. Set in 1990, in and around Northfield House, the film looks at how the social and political events of that year (including the poll tax and the fall of Thatcher) shaped the world the filmmakers son was born into.
Beasts of the Southern Wild. Six-year-old Hushpuppy lives with her father, Wink, in a remote Delta community. Wink is a stern taskmaster, but he is preparing his young daughter for the end of the world. When Wink falls mysteriously ill, nature seems to fall ill with him. Temperatures rise, the ice caps melt and fearsome prehistoric beasts called aurochs run loose. Rising waters threaten to engulf their community, sending Hushpuppy in search of her long-lost mother.
