AFS & The Contemporary Present: Daniel Johnston in the 80s

Special Event

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

As part of the Contemporary Austin’s exhibition Daniel Johnston: I Live My Broken Dreams, the first-ever museum survey of works by the legendary musician and visual artist, AFS and The Contemporary Austin will present an evening of Johnston’s early film appearances. The evening will include a screening of Woodshock, a verité documentary of the Dripping Springs festival of the same name, which captures the mood and the characters of the mid 80s alt music scene in Central Texas. A post-screening discussion following the films will feature Richard Linklater in person, and other special guests.
