Texas Focus: Infinity Baby

Texas Spirit Theater | NR | 80 min. | Comedy

November 30, 2017 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Join the Bullock Museum for a screening and conversation about the dry comedy Infinity Baby.

A pointed look at contemporary life, Infinity Baby features babies that don't age, emotionally stunted men, and a series of barely believable relationships.

Event Details

Infinity Baby is the latest offering from filmmaker Bob Byington. In a world where an accidental genetic mutation has created babies that don't grow up, Byington examines the human condition at all stages of life.

A cinematic exploration of the Texas narrative, the Museum's Texas Focus Film Series highlights stories by, for, and about Texans. This evening's program includes a film screening and Q&A with Director Bob Byington. Come early at 6pm for a welcome reception with cash bar.

Please note: Entrance for this screening will be at the IMAX lobby doors.

Your ticket purchase supports the Bullock Museum's exhibitions and educational programming.
