“A sharp yet gloriously sugarcoated satire on corporate America.”
“It is hard not to fall head over cowboy boots in love with David Byrne’s impressive first film.”
“Deeply funny and free-spirited, TRUE STORIES is a nuanced, acutely perceptive mosaic of a film, a merging of comedy and music and art.”
David Byrne’s directorial debut, and in fact his only directorial effort to date, takes us into a quirk-filled Texas of the imagination where various parties prepare for the state’s Sesquicentennial Celebration. In 35mm.
The first screening of this film will be preceded by a performance by Slomo Drags from Austin’s own critically acclaimed nonprofit music label Spaceflight Records.
