There's a new documentary about AFS Founder and Artistic Director Richard Linklater. The film features interviews with the Linklater collaborators such as Matthew McConaughey, Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke, Jack Black and many others. Through it all you get a sense of the way that Linklater has brought his special vision of filmmaking and film appreciation to life.
If you've ever wondered how a man who seems so laid back can get so many movies made, both big-budget crowd-pleasers and smaller independent films, this film will give you a clue. He has a rare ability to draw the best out of his collaborators and make something even better than the sum of the parts.
The film is available exclusively through Austinfilm.org through November 30. Every rental or purchase of the film benefits AFS artistic programs.
