“Cary Fukunaga’s BEASTS OF NO NATION is a wholly original masterpiece.”-Sasha Stone, Awards Daily

From writer/director Cary Joji Fukunaga, BEASTS OF NO NATION, set in West Africa, tells the story of AGU (Abraham Attah), a young villager, whom we meet playing with his older brother, making mischief with his friends at a nearby refugee camp and enjoying dinner with his family. But the happy routines of childhood are shattered when army troops from the capital city arrive to squelch a rebellion against the country’s corrupt regime. His mother and sister escape to a nearby city, but Agu is left behind with his father and brother, and shortly thereafter, he is suddenly on his own.
