‘The Florida Project:’ Indie film with the feel of a documentary

“The Florida Project” takes place in a low-rent motel near Disney World. It follows the wild antics of a 6 year old and her friends who live there. We speak with the director, who likes to cast first-time actors, as well as the actress who plays the mom. The director found her on Instagram.
