Directed by Benh Zeitlin (US), this 2012 film is a fantasy drama about Hurricane Katrina.

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 catastrophes of unstoppable proportions.

This amazing film was nominated for four Academy Awards, including one for best actress.

The star of the show, Quvenzhané Wallis, was the youngest-ever nominee for best actress, at age 9.

All films are shown at Carrick Cineplex on Thursdays at 8.30pm. For further information, call 086 3856 776.
