This DVD/Blu-ray includes six short films that represent the creative community and avant-garde nature of Austin in the late 1970s and early 1980s, especially the new wave and punk scenes.
“The really startling thing, given the chance to view several top-notch Austin-made films . . . was the exciting discovery of the epic fusion between Austin film and Austin music.”
—Jonathan Demme, New York Rocker
Under the guidance of Louis Black, six films from Austin’s early indie scene are restored and presented together as a package for the first time since Jonathan Demme introduced them at the Collective for Living Cinema in October 1981. Made in Texas will premiere at SXSW Film 2015 and show at festivals across the United States and Canada. This DVD includes exciting extras, such as photographs from the productions, punk posters from Austin’s thriving music scene, archival paper materials, and much more.
