Dream is Destiny"
Directed by Louis Black and Karen Bernstein, the documentary Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny examines the work of Austin's most influential filmmaker. The documentary recalls how Linklater founded the Austin Film Society, enjoyed instant critical success with Slacker (1991); eschewed Hollywood in favor of making intensely personal projects with the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Ethan Hawke, Jack Black, and Julie Delpy; and spent 12 years working on the Oscar-nominated Boyhood (2014). Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny will screen 9:15 p.m. March 11 at the Marchesa Hall & Theatre, 3 p.m. Saturday, March 12 at the Paramount Theatre, 4 p.m. March 15 at the Marchesa Hall & Theatre, and 4:30 p.m. March 18 at the Topfer Theatre at ZACH during the SXSW Film Festival. Louis Black is the co-founder of the Austin Chronicle and a co-founder and senior director of the SXSW Festival. Karen Bernstein directed the documentary Are The Kids Alright? and has produced films for PBS American Masters. Karen Bernstein joins Louis Black during this interview.
