A24 and the Writers Guild Foundation invite you to a screening of The Florida Project at RealD Screening Room in Beverly Hills
A discussion with writer and director Sean Baker and co-writer Chris Bergoch immediately follows the screening.
About the film:
Set on a stretch of highway just outside the imagined utopia of Disney World, The Florida Project follows six-year-old Moonee (Brooklynn Prince in a stunning breakout turn) and her rag-tag gang of friends. Moonee and her rebellious mother Halley (Bria Vinaite, another major discovery) live week to week at “The Magic Castle,” a budget motel managed by Bobby (a career-best Willem Dafoe), whose stern exterior hides a deep reservoir of kindness and compassion.
With The Florida Project, Sean Baker gives life and a voice to a community rarely seen on screen. Through the eyes of Moonee, Halley, and Bobby, Baker has created a spellbinding and transformative portrait of contemporary lives lived in the margins that are otherwise too easily forgotten. The Florida Project declares, boldly and proudly, that anywhere can be a Magic Kingdom – it just depends on how you see it.
This event is free with RSVP below. First come, first served. Screening starts at 7:30pm.
Sponsored by one of our incredible Volunteer & Mentorship Program partners: Los Angeles County High School for the Arts Cinematic Arts Department
