WINNER OF THE GRAND JURY PRIZE at the 2012 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL

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.

91 minutes. Rated PG-13. Film starts at 4:45.

Michigan Theater has now announced a start time for this film. It is 4:45, so let's meet at 4:30 by the staircase.

After the film we will walk down to Seva on Liberty St. for food, drinks and conversation.

Please bring $1 to cover annual Meetup dues.

    very different, excellent acting from the little girl. SO much violence she has to go through from her dad but yet the love is there and overwhelming.

    Great acting. There might be some Academy nominations out of this one. Great conversation at Seva afterward.

    I just saw the trailer for this film on Monday here in Phoenix! I will be in Ann Arbor and would love to see it! How exciting!
