SXSW Presents continues to roll as the homestretch of season two is upon us. The season is left with three more episodes, and everything seems to have been quite a hit. Friday night will bring our episode of East Austin Stories, compiling great short films from Andy Garrison’s acclaimed UT film class. For those not familiar with East Austin Stories, here’s how The Austin Chronicle describes the program:
“This week’s installment is a compilation of East Austin Stories, the video project that UT professor Andy Garrison started with his documentary class in 2001 (www.eastaustinstories.org). ‘Flying in the face of the popular wisdom that good fences make good neighbors, the East Austin Stories video project makes prying its modus operandi,’ Chronicle contributor Kimberley Jones wrote in 2004. ‘The goal of the project is to give the Eastside community the chance to share its many stories.'”
