Hello, movie lovers!
Legendary director John Sayles is visiting Austin next week, and you can see him free at the KLRU studios if you are so inclined.
Here’s the blurb from KLRU:
John Sayles is perhaps one of the most respected independent filmmakers of our time. In 1979, he produced his first film entitled Return of the Secaucus 7. In 1983 he received a MacArthur Foundation “genius grant,” which paid him to produce films for five years, including The Brother from Another Planet in 1984. Sayles has written several novels including his first story I-80 Nebraska that won an O. Henry Award and his novel Union Dues which was nominated for a National Book Award. Sayles most recent feature film Go For Sisters was released in November. He is in Austin for a screening of his 1987 film MATEWAN with the Austin Film Society.
