Texas Focus: Goliath

Film Screening and Discussion

December 15, 2016 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Go behind the scenes with Austin filmmakers David and Nathan Zellner in Q&A after a screening of the film Goliath.

A dark comedy set and filmed in Austin, Goliath follows a recently divorced man who has lost the one thing that matters to him most – his cat. Best known for their award-winning films Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter and Kid-Thing, hilariously deadpan Sundance shorts and music videos, the Zellner Brothers will discuss their experiences filming Goliath, the impact of regional cinema, as well as their upcoming project, Damsel, starring Robert Pattinson.
