It’s Richard Linklater’s world, and indie American filmmakers are just living in it.
With candid testimonies from his favorite collaborators Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, along with Jack Black, Keanu Reeves, Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, Mark Duplass, Billy Bob Thornton, Parker Posey and his contemporary Kevin Smith, “21 Years” reveals how Linklater became the modern-day indie film godfather.
The doc traces Linklater from the days of pop cultural touchstones “Dazed and Confused” and debut film “Slacker” to the “Before” series and “Boyhood,” two bar-setting, of-the-moment arthouse masterpieces.
And with Linklater now a top pick for the Best Director Oscar, “21 Years” offers a well-timed toast to his legacy. Gravitas Ventures takes the film to theaters and VOD on November 7. Check out the new poster and trailer below.
