Indiewire Presents: From Richard Linklater to Alejandro Jodorwosky, These Are the Faces of SXSW 2014

At this year's SXSW, Indiewire partnered with photographer Daniel Bergeron to produce a series of portraits with talent representing films -- and the best in TV -- screened at the festival. From Alejandro Jodorowsky to Spandau Ballet to Elijah Wood, this year's lineup brought together a cross-section of filmmakers, actors and musicians, all of whom were obsessed with the conceptualization of identity and memory. 

In Shawn Christensen's "Before I Disappear" -- an expressive drama about the relationship between a suicidal young man and his niece -- we are asked to explore the different dimensions of ourselves; who we are here and now. Whereas Jodorosky's "The Dance of Reality," and "Spandau Ballet," meditate on how we are remembered. 

Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" is perhaps cinema's most in-depth examination of what it means to create a sense of self, while Showtime's "Halt and Catch Fire" takes on an entire industry and with it the creation of the computer-centric sense of self.

And finally: These are some really incredible portraits. In addition to Daniel, a big shout-out goes to Tim League, who allowed us to use his Alamo Drafthouse headquarters on Austin's 6th Street for our home base.
