Texas Focus Film Series: ‘Slacker’
April 17, 2020 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
About the Event:
Shot in various parts of Austin on a modest budget, Slacker comments on social heirarchy and the many forms it takes, and it has emerged as an independent film darling and trailblazer. Slacker was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" in 2012.
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. Prior to the feature film screening is Ryan Darbonne's short film, I AM TX. Come early at 6:00pm for complimentary coffee and treats. Quantities are limited. Seating for film begins at 6:30 p.m
Please note: Entrance for this screening will be at the IMAX lobby doors.
Promotional support for the Texas Focus Film Series is provided by the Texas Film Commission.Back to the event calendar
