MFF alum Behn Zeitlin's BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD recently won the FIPRESCI prize and Caméra d'Or at the 2012 International Cannes Film Festival. The film also received a special mention from the Cannes Ecumenical Jury.
Benh Zeitlin's BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD whisks you to a surreal realm, where little girls and mythical animals coexist in a bayou called The Bathtub, all intertwined in the cosmic mesh of the universe. Hushpuppy (stunning newcomer Quvenzhané Wallis) relentlessly explores her world for answers, to satisfy her curiosity, and to make her budding mark on a world she's only beginning to comprehend.
