The Daily Traveler – July 10, 2012
Directed by first-time filmmaker Benh Zeitlin, Beasts of the Southern Wild is set in a marshy bayou in South Louisiana outside the levees, where a six-year-old girl named Hushpuppy and her hard-drinking—and dying—father Wink live in a community nicknamed the Bathtub. This magical realist feature film—which won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance—was shot in and near Isle de Jean Charles, a real-life fishing hamlet in Bayou Terrebonne about an hour and a half southwest of New Orleans that has felt the impact of rising sea levels, coastal erosion, and the BP oil spill. Zeitlin talks about how the vanishing wetlands, colorful residents, and exotic culture of South Louisiana became his inspiration.
