Dazed and Confused with live commentary by Richard Linklater and Jason Reitman

All right, all right, all right. It’s the last day of school in the summer of ’76, and the kids of Lee High School are busting loose. As the long Texas night settles in, the kids bounce from a busted house party to a pool hall to a field-kegger for the ages, all while debating life’s immortal questions—Who am I? When will I get out of this podunk town? Where’s the beer?

The festival is thrilled to be presenting not only a documentary about one of the all-time great independent filmmakers—Richard Linklater - dream is destiny—but is equally excited about screening his seminal film Dazed and Confused along with live commentary from Linklater and moderated by acclaimed director Jason Reitman. Get insider information on one of the most quotable films of all-time, which boasts an incredible cast of then mostly unknowns who later went on to become household names. While the film is screening, Linklater and Reitman will share fun stories, behind-the-scenes details, and filmmaker insights in real time.
