Beasts of the Southern Wild (Q&A) 2012

United Kingdom

Benh Zeitlin's recipe had just two ingredients - 'fuse fables with reality' – but produced something of rare colour and complexity. Quvenzhané Wallis, the nine-year-old star, joins him as they embrace ecology and childhood soundscapes, and demonstrate why anger is best graded like traffic lights.
