Southern Wild Director On His Next Film

“Beasts of the Southern Wild” filmmaker Benh Zeitlin has revealed the first details on his mysterious next project which sounds even more surreal.

Speaking with The New York Times, Zeitlin says: “The new film is about a young girl who gets kidnapped onto a hidden ecosystem where a tribal war is raging over a form of pollen that breaks the relationship between aging and time.”

He goes on to say a young girl is again the central focus, and: “It follows a friendship-love story-adventure of her and a joyous, reckless, pleasure-mongering young boy as they swirl in and out of youth and as the ecosystem around them spirals toward destruction.”

While he and his crew is hard at work on developing the film, there aren’t any dates yet set.
