Texas Focus Film Series: ‘Paris, Texas’


January 17, 2019


Austin, TX

About the Event:

Paris, Texas, co-written by Texan L.M. Kit Carson, takes place, and was shot in various parts of Texas. Paris, Texas is a quiet film, which comments on the American myth and journey. Much of the plot is understood through the arid back-drop of Texas and the score, with no dialogue heard until more than 20 minutes into the film. 

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 William P. Hobby Centennial Professor Emeritus, Janet Staiger. Come early at 6pm for a welcome reception.

Please note: Entrance for this screening will be at the IMAX lobby doors.

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.
