TX Doc Tour: ’51 Birch Street’

TX Doc Tour: '51 Birch Street'

The October selection for Austin Film Society’s Texas Documentary Tour, is Doug Block’s powerful doc, 51 Birch Street. A sensation on the festival circuit these last 12 months (where it played Toronto, IDFA, SXSW, among many others), the film is a gripping portrait of Block’s family, especially the relationship between himself and his parents. Shortly after Doug’s trip to SXSW this year, the film recently entered into a deal with Truly Indie, which will open the film theatrically in New York on October 18. It will then roll out nationwide. But, Austin audiences will get a chance to see it before the national release, and have Doug Block in person for a Q&A. The screening will happen on Wednesday, October 11, 7:00 p.m. at the Alamo Drafthouse Downtown. Be there, for a film that has won over audiences around the globe.
