Film screening series: AFS and Richard Linklater present "Jewels in the Wasteland II"
Austin Film Society artistic director (and acclaimed director) Richard Linklater presents "Jewels in the Wasteland II," an eclectic weekly screening series of films that were released between 1984 and 1986. Movies from the 1980's played a seminal role in nurturing and inspiring Linklater, so now he is bringing them back to the screen for others to enjoy.
