[Interview] ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ Director Benh Zeitlin Talks Success Before Release, Shriveling Up In Post-Production, and Inspiration

Roaring into limited release this weekend is Benh Zeitlin‘s bayou fantasy Beasts of the Southern Wild. To call it a unique exploration of familiar themes in extraordinary situations is just a scratch of the surface; Beasts also stands as one of the few current films sure to inspire formal discussion and wide-ranging opinions. Earlier this month I had the chance to sit down with the film’s two stars and director for a roundtable discussion and, below, you can find a talk with director Benh Zeitlin — it covers working with Quvenzhané Wallis, the affect of the Bp oil spill on the set, difficulties in editing, favorite moments, and getting to work at Skywalker Sound.

When dealing with this young cast — especially so many that haven’t acted before — did you try to get [star Quvenzhané Wallis] to come into the atmosphere, mood, and the setting, or did you just let that naturally »
