Texas Focus Film Series: ‘Hud’


April 18, 2019


Austin, TX

About the Event:

Filmed in and set in Texas, Hud was based on the 1961 novel, Horseman, Pass By, written by Texan Larry McMurtry. Hud was later described as a revisionist western that depicts generational conflict, social disorder ,and a morally questionable protagonist, reflective of the turmoil felt during the 1960s throughout the country.

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 classic ideas of Texas and Texans as viewed on screen. This evening's program is shown in conjunction with our Spirit Theater Gallery Texas Film Poster exhibition, and includes a film screening and Q&A with J. Frank Dobie Regents Professor, Don Graham. Come early at 6pm for a welcome reception.

Promotional support for the Bullock Museum's film programs is provided by The University of Texas at Austin, Department of Radio, Television, and Film. Additional promotional support for the Texas Focus Film Series is provided by the Texas Film Commission.
