Talk Hard – Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild)


Grab a plate of fried gator and settle in for another episode of Talk Hard. Beasts of the Southern Wild was a surprise contender for Best Picture, Director, and Actress at this year’s Oscar ceremony. Quickflix’s Simon Miraudo spoke to filmmaker Benh Zeitlin before all that hoopla; back when it was just a Cannes and Sundance sensation. Simon wraps up the ep with a review of the flick (one of his favourites of 2012).
