The Florida Project 18+
"This is a near-perfect film." (Variety)
Sean Baker (Tangerine) sets forward a compelling portrait of a community of friends and familes living in a budget motel community on the fringes of Theme Park Central, Orlando, USA. A Cannes 2017 Directors Fortnight selection, The Florida Project tells the story of a precocious six year-old, her ragtag group of friends and their summertime adventures.
