About the Event:


An American in Texas is an official selection of the 2017 Austin Film Festival.

Synopsis: Lifelong friends and punk band, SGW (Surgeon General's Warning), look to bust out of small town Texas as 1990 comes to a close. Faced with the reality of a dead end job at the chemical plant, a life in the oil field, or fighting a war that has no meaning to them, the boys see their band as the one ticket out of town. As they plot their escape to Los Angeles, the boys find out what holds them together could be the one thing that can tear them apart.
