It goes without saying that we're incredibly humbled, mystified, and proud that our tiny film has caught Oprah Winfrey's eye. We've come so far! Sunday, August 26th at 11 AM EST/PST, Oprah will be spending a full hour with Dwight, Quvenzhané, and Benh on her multi-platform Super Soul Sunday. The show will air on OWN (your local channel is easy to find on the Oprah site) and is also available streaming online and on the OWN Facebook page.
WE WANT YOU TO HOST A SUPER SOUL SUNDAYVIEWING PARTY!
Supporters from Cleveland to California will be getting together to amplify this boost for Beasts!
Viewing parties come in all shapes, sizes and geographic locations. You could call your local brunch spot and corral a group of hungry friends to watch there. Or simply open up your living room, have a few folks over, and try out a new recipe. When Beasts screened in Ashland, OR, a local restaurant called Thai Pepper served up "the Hushpuppy", a tasty drink of sweet corn infused vodka, soda (or tonic), and a bacon salt rim! Create your own Bathtub Gin or fried Hushpuppy and send us photos of you and your friends enjoying them together!
If you're going to organize an event, emails us at email@example.com and we can send you a goodie bag of posters, pins, recipes and other cool party favors.
Dwight Henry (aka Wink) is getting his friends together to watch at a Jazz club in New Orleans so stop by if you're local, or follow on twitter via @abuttermilkdrop.
You can also mention @BeastsTheMovie, @SuperSoulSunday and #beastingit to make sure we know you're out there!
Head over to our Be a Beast page to organize an event and find out what's going on around you.
See you on SUPER SOUL SUNDAY!
