After seven weeks in limited release, "Beasts of the Southern Wild" has grossed $7.3 million. As it sets to expand in the coming months, the promotional machinery is gearing up.

The film follows the travails of a family living in squalor on the fringes of society.  Quvenzhane Wallis steals the picture as Huspuppy, the six-year-old fanciful daughter of Wink (Dwight Henry) forced to fend for herself when their home is flooded.

Below is a fascinating featurette from the Creators Project that explores the making of this low-budget picture that could become a major Oscar player. It has already won the Grand Jury prize at Sundance and the Camera D'or from Cannes. 

Writer/director Behn Zeitlin discusses the difficulty of filming in the Louisiana bayou and visual effects wiz Ray Tintori explains how he worked around the oil spill. Zeitlin and Lucy Alibar adapted her stage play. The multi-tasking Zeitlin also wrote the score with Dan Romer.
