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.
