Tubi TV will be the home of an award-winning film Beast Beast. The free streaming option announced the film today in a release.
Beast Beast is set in a quiet southern town, where popular and charismatic theatre kid Krista (Chen) finds herself increasingly drawn to Nito (Angeles), 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 (Madden), will soon become intertwined—until they reach a breaking point.
Director Danny Madden takes his award-winning short film Krista and transforms it into a feature exploration of adolescence, performance, and identity. 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. Madden has been listed on Filmmakermagazine’s “25 new faces of independent film” in 2012, after (Notes on) Biology won the short animation prize at the SXSW Film Festival.
Beast Beast was an official selection at SXSW and also received the Grand Jury Prize at Champs-Elysees Film Festival’s US In Progress. Produced in association with Baldwin’s company, Persona Entertainment, the film is also executive produced by Casey Bader and Jim Cummings with Benjamin Wiessner, Matt Miller and Tara Ansley serving as producers. Kristian Zuniga serves as Director of Photography.
