Movie: Beasts of the Southern Wild

It is a strange movie - but one with an incredible imagination, and absolutely stunning acting performances; and a moral story about the devastating impact of climate change. Set in a poor community near New Orleans, the story revolves around a young girl, Hushpuppy, her eccentric father who is trying to teach her how to survive and some strange events that take place during, what seems to be a hurricane. I don't think I really understood some part of the story (like the aurochs), but the acting performances were incredible.
