THE FLORIDA PROJECT Q&A | BFI London Film Festival 2017
Director Sean Baker and actors Brooklynn Kimberly Prince, Bria Vinaite, Valeria Cotto and Willem Dafoe spoke to Anna Smith about the making of their film at the BFI London Film Festival Gala screening of The Florida Project.
Six-year-old Moonee (the astonishingly good Brooklynn Kimberly Prince) lives with her mother and other castaways from the American dream in a candy-floss-coloured roadside motel in Orlando. Disney World is just up the road, but their budget dayglow home is no plush hotel resort. Halley, Moonee’s mother, is only just an adult herself. More of an incorrigible older sister than a parent, she gets a kick out of juvenile hijinks, with utter disregard for their consequences.
