Richard Linklater's debut feature Slacker (1991) portrayed a generation of over-qualified under-achievers and reanimated American independent cinema. His film followed a series of hipsters and oddballs over a twenty-four-hour period, taking in weird obsessions, rituals and even matricide along the way. To mark the film's 20th anniversary, Austin Film Society invited twenty-four groups and filmmakers to remake a scene each. Some chose to update the script, others tracked down original cast members. What emerges is a smart and funny love letter to Austin: a city whose laid-back spirit, despite two decades of change, remains the same. We are delighted to welcome producer Daniel Metz to introduce this European premiere screening. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Youth and Short Film Festival.
