Three interwoven stories of youth navigating identity, first love, petty crime, and gun violence in the American South. Brimming with energy and style, Beast Beast captures what it means to come of age in an era marked by technology and social media, where violetnt clashes awaken dormant passions and teenagers are faced with growing up all too quickly. Rhythmically paced and full of the magnetic energy of youth, Danny Madden’s debut feature was produced by Durham filmmaker Benjamin Wiessner and serves as a warning about the dangerous addiction of social media and the isolation it so often causes.

Prior to the film will be a live, socially distanced, pop-up dance performance choreographed by Kate Mulstein & Rachael Goolsby.
