Closing Night Presentation

From master storyteller Guillermo del Toro comes The Shape of Water, an otherworldly fairy tale set against the backdrop of Cold War-era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. But the facility’s single-minded authoritarian Richard Strickland (Michael Shannon) threatens to stand in the way of her happiness. Rounding out the cast are Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Screening #1 includes an in-person tribute to Oscar®-nominated actor Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals, Revolutionary Road).
