Richard Linklater is one of the key figures responsible for establishing Austin’s incredible film community — a community that Mondo and Alamo Drafthouse are immensely proud to be a part of. From founding the Austin Film Society to producing films in and around the Austin area, Richard Linklater is a champion of cinema in the city. His stories tell the journey of life as it is, funny and challenging and constantly moving. Mondo is thrilled to honor him and his filmography with a talented group of artists to interpret these themes with an art exhibit as unique and diverse as the films he has made.
“Mondo has reinvigorated cinematic poster design. It’s a big honor to have their trailblazing design team reimagine the art that accompanies my films,” said Richard Linklater.
“No director’s films feel more aesthetically tied to Austin, TX than those of Richard Linklater. Between classics like The Before Trilogy, Dazed and Confused, Boyhood, I think all of us can call at least one of his movies a favorite. We will welcome him to our gallery with a definitive collection of screen-printed posters paying tribute to one of Texas’ premier storytellers,” said Mondo Co-Founder/Creative Director Mitch Putnam.
