THE FLORIDA PROJECT - MEDIA PREVIEW SCREENING, Saturday 18 November
Media Screening Saturday 18 November 10.45am for 11.00am start at Luna Leederville
Sean Baker (Tangerine) sets forward a compelling portrait of a community of friends and families living in a budget motel community on the fringes of Theme Park Central, Orlando, USA.
A Cannes 2017 Directors Fortnight selection, The Florida Project tells the story of a precocious six year-old, her ragtag group of friends and their summertime adventures.
Baker's immersive examination of lives lived in the shadow of a fantasy world holds no clichéd, feel-good lessons about love or families. Instead, it boldly takes us to a place where momentary joys, a mother's devotion, and a spirited girl called Moonee can find a home.
