Texas Focus Film Series: ‘Becoming Leslie’
February 27, 2020 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
About the Event:
Becoming Leslie is a documentary that reveals the inner and bizarre world of Albert Leslie Cochran, a rebellious, cross-dressing homeless man who became the most unlikely civic symbol of Austin, Texas. The film chronicles the nomadic life and steady career of a misfit turned a cultural icon while searching for love and a true sense of home. Through Leslie, one man’s efforts to preserve his own identity are paralleled with the collective struggle of a rapidly changing city.
A cinematic exploration of the Texas narrative, the Museum's Texas Focus Film Series highlights stories by, for, and about Texans. This season's selections center around films made in Austin. This evening's program includes a film screening and Q&A with director Tracy Frazier. Come early at 6:00pm for complimentary coffee and treats. Quantities are limited. Seating for film begins at 6:30 p.m
Please note: Initial entrance for this screening will be at the IMAX lobby doors.
