One of the only tragic and depressing things to happen during SXSW 2008, was the horrible car accident experienced by Glory At Sea filmmaker Benh Zeitlin. On his way to his first screening, he was rear-ended and forced in the hospital for emergency surgery. It cast a dark shadow over all of us as we hoped and prayed that Benh would come out of it okay. He’s doing much better, and even managed to attended his third screening at SXSW (after the film won the “SXSW Wholphin Award”). But, as Karina Longworth points out, Benh missed the entire festival.
