Ain't Them Bodies Saints
Dir. David Lowery
Starring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, this epic drama is not only directed by a Texas filmmaker, but the plot revolves around the austere setting of the Texas hills as a man escapes imprisonment to find the wife and child he left behind. Director David Lowery moved to Texas from Wisconsin at age 8, and never left.

Pit Stop
Dir. Yen Tan
A glimpse into the secretive lives of two men drawn together by a yearning for romance in spite of the dreary realities of their working class existences. Originally from Malaysia, director Yen Tan recently relocated from Dallas to Austin, where he received an AFS Texas Filmmaker Production Fund grant for $7,000 to complete work on this feature.
