Beasts of the Southern Wild

Posted: September 9, 2012 in Uncategorized

Beasts of the Southern Wild has taken the film industry by storm after winning the acclaimed Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and other awards at the Cannes Film Festival. The micro-budget indie film has already garnered Oscar buzz, a major feat for any new filmmaker. The young, first time director, Benh Zeitlin, faced several challenges working with children, non-actors, the outdoors, and little resources, yet put other big budget films to shame with his riveting portrayal of a young girls journey after a natural disaster destroys her community.

If you missed the Q&A with Beasts of the Southern Wild producer Michael Gottwald then you’re still in luck! Check out the video below. Gottwald gives an insightful look at the film’s development from the very beginning.

Beasts of the Southern Wild will be playing at Cine Athens at 5:15pm now until Thursday, 9/13. We highly recommend the trip.
