Jewels in the Wasteland

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

The October 4 screening will feature a live introduction from AFS Founder Richard Linklater and a post-screening discussion on stage.

Gus Van Sant’s first widely-distributed feature film marked the arrival of a gloriously fresh cinematic voice. Matt Dillon plays an addict and superstitious thief, robbing drugstores with his posse to nurse his habit and pay the motel bills.
