In a quiet southern town, popular and charismatic theatre kid Krista finds herself increasingly drawn to Nito, the new student in her high school who catches her attention with his impressive skating videos. The two share an easy rapport and quickly grow close. Unbeknownst to her, their lives and that of her gun-loving neighbor, Adam, will soon become intertwined—until they reach a breaking point.

TFF alum! The short film upon which this debut feature is based, Krista, played at #2018TFF. "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 violent clashes awaken dormant passions and teenagers are faced with growing up all too quickly." (Sundance)

The doc-style cinematography allows the camera to act as an undercover agent, going deep into Gen Z territory.

It's a great movie about teenagers that does not talk down to them or patronize them, and I think that it's a great movie for them and for everyone because we were all there once.
