About Benh Zeitlin:
Benjamin Harold "Benh" Zeitlin is an American filmmaker, composer and animator, best known for directing the 2012 film Beasts of the Southern Wild.
Local casting is just something I love doing.
I don't watch trailers, I like to go into every movie fresh.
I always have a backlog of like seven movies that I want to make.
I've always loved movies, since I was a little kid, but I never wanted to be part of that industry. It always seemed horrifying, the way films were made.
Someone once told me that movies are a universal passport. And it's true, wherever you go.
