Q&A with Danny Madden / 9:00pm

Director Danny Madden takes his award-winning short film Krista and impressively transforms it into an unsettling feature exploration of adolescence, performance, and identity. Newcomer Shirley Chen gives a remarkable breakout performance, crackling with the vulnerability and joy of first love, while Will Madden and Jose Angeles deliver disquieting turns as young men grasping for individuality in an uncertain time. 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.
