Thanks to everyone who came to check the film out in Austin - we all had a great time at SXSW, and I think we definitely converted a good deal more Scott fans. Let the obsession begin!
The only drawback to having a film in a film festival is that you rarely have time to see other films. Luckily I was able to catch the luminous and moving “Kurt Cobain: About a Son” by AJ Schnack as well as a new print of Bruce Weber’s classic portrait of Chet Baker, “Let’s Get Lost” which was the film that gave me the idea to do a film about Scott Walker in the first place.
Completely wrecked after 24 hours of planes/trains/taxicabs trying to get home despite the storms - off to Thessaloníki in about five hours. SXSW press rolling in - check in the News & Reviews for a few new bits: review in Salon.com, Austin Chronicle and American-Statesman, and buzz on various blogs. And of course, a few more tequila-induced photos of the Texas-sized fun we had…
And it is official - we have been selected for the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival. (full line-up here)
Finally get to bring it on home!
