The film that defined Austin, Texas for a generation. Richard Linklater enlisted his local community to help him make a visionary feature that would take shape through a chain of interactions over the course of a single day, the action moving from one scene to the next by following each new character. The film is known as one of the defining American movies of the 1990s.


Synopsis

The film that defined Austin, Texas for a generation and popularized a term that was forevermore inextricably linked to the over-educated, under-employed, and asocial members of Generation X. Richard Linklater enlisted his community, who were all regulars of the Austin Film Society, to join him in his efforts to make a visionary feature film that would take shape through a chain of interactions over the course of a single day, the action moving from one scene to the next by following each new character. The film is known as one of the defining American features of the 1990s.
