Holodeck Records founders,
Austin Film Society "Lates" programmer,
"Ra: Path of the Sun God"
Animator Lesley Keen’s little-seen 1990 animated feature Ra: Path of the Sun God will enjoy a rare screening and a live rescore during the SXSW Film Festival courtesy of the Austin-based Holodeck Records and the Austin Film Society. Holodeck artists Majeure, True Creature, and Curved Light each received one of the hand-drawn parable’s three chapters to rescore and to perform live at 5:30 p.m. March 13 at the AFS Cinema. Commissioned by UK broadcaster Channel 4, Ra: Path of the Sun God retells the myth of The Creation at the hands of the Egyptian deity. Lesley Keen, who co-directed 1985’s Orpheus Through the Ages, will attend the screening. Founded by Amber Goers and Adam Jones, the Austin-based Holodeck Records specializes in synth-driven and electronic acts. Jazmyne Moreno programs “Lates” for the Austin Film Society and co-programs “Weird Wednesday” for the Alamo Drafthouse.
