The Big Screen: Texas Directors Rule SXSW

If there’s one theme running through this year’s South by Southwest Film Conference, it’s that just about every big-name Texas director had something new to show. Robert Rodriguez and Mike Judge screened their new forays into television. Wes Anderson visited with The Grand Budapest Hotel. And University of Texas professor Kat Candler made a splash with her new film, Hellion.

The Big Screen team certainly took note. But we devote this week’s show to two other Texans who represented well at SXSW – Richardson native David Gordon Green and Austin’s Richard Linklater. Here’s our look at their new films, Joe and Boyhood, respectively, as well as highlights from our conversation with each director.
