AFS at the Marchesa (6226 Middle Fiskville Rd)

$10 General Admission // $8 AFS MAKE & WATCH Members // $5 AFS LOVE Members // Free for AFS Premiere Members 

Tobe Hooper’s EGGSHELLS is a highly interesting time-capsule of Austin in 1968, not only because of its many recognizable locations and preponderance of Aquarian personal style choices, but in the very use of the camera, in the cutting and in Hooper’s decision to make an art film along European lines in Texas, of all places. Hooper became more polished as the years went on, of course, but the anarchic spirit of his first film lives on in his work and in the film culture of Austin, which no longer seems like such an improbable place for art film. EGGSHELLS presents a cross-section of the spiritual and emotional fabric of its time, and the style in which it is presented would be at home alongside the works of Godard and Antonioni except for a native guilelessness, an impatience with pretension and a sense of cool that is all Austin.
