Tuesday night delivers the third episode of SXSW Presents, on KLRU-TV in Austin. This week’s episode features a slew of award-winning short films and the feature presentation, Nancy Higgins’ Viva Les Amis. A true Austin story of artists finding a homebase, the documentary looks back on the history and culture surrounding the once-popular (but now gone) cafe, Les Amis. A famous destination for both locals and tourists (and the setting of a few scenes in Richard Linklater’s Slacker), the hotspot is now home to a Starbuck’s. Higgins uses her camera to check in with the former regulars, staff, and even the new generation of locals who have no clue about the history they missed. Catch the film, at 9 p.m. on Tuesday night. And, stick around after the feature to watch the panel discussion which includes filmmaker Nancy Higgins, and some special guests.
