Podcast Overview: Anyone who has seen the popular indie film “Beasts of the Southern Wild” has had the chance to step into the magical backwoods world co-created by Benh Zeitlin and Lucy Alibar. It is a dark and fantastic place, populated by larger-than-life characters who take viewers on a visceral journey deep into Louisiana’s bayous. Learn more about Lucy Alibar as she discusses her own tough-love relationship with her ill father growing up, a kinship that is acted out perfectly by Quvenzhané Wallis and Dwight Henry in “Beasts of the Southern Wild.” Lucy also discusses her creative process and the hurdles she faced during the writing of Beasts in this edition of The TGS Podcast.
