Join us on Thursday June 9th, for the next Texas Focus screening of True Stories.
Talking Heads singer David Byrne plays host to this bizarre patchwork of tabloid-inspired tales, set in the fictional town of Virgil, Texas. Cruising the streets in his cherry-red drop-top, Byrne introduces viewers to the local eccentrics gearing up for the town’s 150th anniversary. They include a community leader (Spalding Gray) with a thing for veggies, a woman (Swoosie Kurtz) so lazy she won’t leave her bed, a lovelorn country singer (John Goodman) and more!
The Texas Focus film series is a monthly series presented by the Bullock Texas State History Museum. May through August, films are co-presented by the Austin Film Festival in association with the Texas Film Commission.
