On the ground at SXSW, America’s ‘punk rock’ festival
The Los Angeles Times is in Austin for South by Southwest, the the annual festival of film, music, technology, art, culture, tacos, barbecue, partying — and something of a laboratory think tank for the future.
Times film writer Mark Olsen (@IndieFocus) talks with @marcmaron, who’s expanding his wings as a movie actor, along with director @lynnsheltonfilm, who saw him as a star. Olsen also interviews @alexgibneyfilm, whose documentary about Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes, “The Inventor: Out For Blood In Silicon Valley,” is set to debut on HBO.
And in a preview of next week’s episode, Austin native Ethan Hawke shares his affection for SXSW, and says “its DNA is a little more punk rock than any other festival in America.”
