    EVENT OF THE MONTH - Alison Macor - Chainsaws, Slackers, and Spy Kids

    During the 1990s, Austin achieved "overnight" success and celebrity
    as a vital place for independent filmmaking. Directors Richard Linklater and
    Robert Rodriguez proved that locally made films could capture a national
    audience. Their success helped transform Austin's homegrown film community
    into a professional film industry. Chainsaws, Slackers, and Spy Kids
    chronicles Austin's colorful movie history with revealing interviews from
    Richard Linklater, Robert Rodriguez, Mike Judge, Quentin Tarantino, Matthew
    McConaughey, George Lucas, and more. Alison Macor explores how Austin has
    become a proving ground for contemporary independent cinema. BookPeople
    will also be partnering with the Austin Film Society for this event, and a
    portion of sales from this book tonight will go to AFS. Don’t miss out on
    this great event about Austin!
