'The Florida Project' cast and director on how reality informs fiction

"The Florida Project" wowed critics in its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and now finds itself in the thick of Hollywood's awards season despite being made on a very low budget with only one recognizable actor (Willem Dafoe). Director Sean Baker, fresh-faced stars Bria Vinaite and Brooklynn Prince, and Dafoe sat down with the L.A. Times at the Toronto International Film Festival to discuss the unique dynamic of pairing seasoned and non-professional actors, and how filming blurred the lines between fiction and reality.
