THE FLORIDA PROJECT

SPECIAL GUESTS: SEAN BAKER

Vivacious six-year-old Moonee runs wild on the grounds of the shabby motel she calls home, indulged by her wild-child mother Halley, an emotionally immature woman who acts out without considering consequences. Sean Baker (Tangerine) observes his impoverished characters with understanding and compassion, depicting their lives and a hardscrabble corner of Florida with warmth, humor, and poignancy. US 2017, 115 min Director Sean Baker
