Dr Michael Lawrence explores Zeitlin's emotive film in depth in his lecture that accompanies the screening of this powerful, thought provoking film. The film focuses on six-year-old Hushpuppy who must learn the ways of courage and love when faced with both her hot-tempered father's fading health and melting ice-caps that flood her bayou community and unleash ancient aurochs,

The focus of the lecture will be on Spectatorship and Marxist interpretations of the film. The day runs from 10:30 to 15:30, and although the content is tailored to meet the requirements of the A-Level Film Studies Course, the material will be accessible and engaging for all.
