Travels With My Film Life: "BathTub", Louisiana - Waters Rising
We do watch "Beasts of The Southern Wild" and so we be in the shanty community of BathTub, Louisiana as the glaciers melt and the waters rise and five-year old HushPuppy have to learn how to stand on her own two feet and find her own fierceness to survive. A fantasy set in a future world.... though how far in the future?.....rooted in the struggle of a drowning community that has major echoes of Hurricane Katrina. A lot of the film's "stir" is down to the amazing six-year old star in Quvenshane Williams as HushPuppy.
