A powerful portrayal of modern teenage life that resonates with youthful energy, Beast Beast is a powerful character study of three young lives torn apart by gun violence.
In a quiet suburban town, charismatic theatre lover Krista finds herself increasingly drawn to quiet new kid Nito, a talented skateboarder whose troubled home life pushes him towards a group of fellow social misfits. Meanwhile, Krista’s recently graduated neighbour attempts to turn his love of guns into viral internet stardom, only to become frustrated by his lack of video views. When a violent event with tragic results shatters their young worlds, the consequences leave simmering feelings of anger, trauma and guilt.
From the producers of Thunder Road and executive producer Alec Baldwin, Beast Beast features captivating performances from Shirley Chen, Jose Angeles and Will Madden. The directorial debut of Danny Madden, it is adapted from his short film Krista which won the first ever ‘Staff Picks Award’ at SXSW in 2018.
