The Florida Project
Pearls

The Florida Project tells the story of Moonee, a precocious six-year-old and her ragtag group of friends whose summer break is filled with childhood wonder, possibility and a sense of adventure, while the adults around them struggle with hard times. All over the United States, cheap motels have become the last refuge for those unable to secure a permanent home. These invisible destitute people are increasingly greater in number, and 41% are families who struggle every day to keep a roof over their heads. This story is set in the suburbs of Orlando, holiday capital par excellence, home to “the most magical place on earth”. All along the road wending through the land of theme parks and resorts, the cheap hotels that in their day attracted tourists, exploiting the mysticism of Disney, now house homeless families. Moonee and her mother Halley, 22, live in one of these places: the Magic Castle Motel.

BIOGRAPHY

Sean Baker debuted as a director with Four Letter Words in 2000. His following works, Take Out (2008) and Prince of Broadway (2009), were nominated for the Independent Spirit John Cassavetes Award, carrying off the Robert Altman Award at the same event with his next film, Starlet (2012). In 2015, at the Sundance Festival, he premiered his fourth feature, Tangerine, completely shot using an iPhone. The Florida Project was presented with huge success at the Directors’ Fortnight of the last Cannes Festival.
