"Guest of Honor,"
Austin-based director Lisa Belcher ushers in 2020 with two new shorts, Guest of Honor and Javelina Run. The drama Guest of Honor focuses on a married couple (Belcher and her co-writer Lukas Hassel) whose grief for their recently deceased son manifests itself in different ways on their 21st wedding anniversary. Guest of Honor, which screened during last year’s Austin Revolution Film Festival, will be available for streaming on Feb. 18. Lisa Belcher’s lighthearted western Javelina Run, which is now out to film festivals, finds two dimwitted ranch hands (screenwriter Aaron G. Hale and Avery Merrifield) trying to impress two women (Belcher and Boyhood’s Lorelei Linklater) by confessing to a robbery they did not commit. Lisa Belcher previously directed the shorts The Gift and Every Tuesday.
