AFS screening Elephant tonight

elephant_150x200.jpgAustin Film Society’s De/Re: Constructing the Narrative series is screening the Gus Van Sant masterpiece Elephant tonight. The movie’s about a school shooting on the scale of Columbine, and in direct contrast to its subject matter it’s very dreamlike, almost as if there’s no reaction or consequence. The kids in the movie were picked from screen tests Van Sant did with regular teenagers, adding to the realism in the film. Elephant won the 2003 Palme D’Or in Cannes and you should jump at the chance to see it on the big screen.

Tickets are $4 for the public and free to AFS members. The show is tonight at 7 at the Alamo Downtown.
