Art Pick | Two Evenings with Ethan Hawke

Whether you’re a fan of the actor or simply appreciate the art of film, the Austin Film Society’s back-to-back events featuring the Academy Award-nominated Ethan Hawke are worth checking out.

On February 17, take in a screening of Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, the last feature film from Sidney Lumet, which stars Hawke and Philip Seymour Hoffman as brothers plotting a jewel heist that, as heists in movies are apt to do, goes terribly wrong. There will also be a Q&A following the screening during which Hawke will answer audience questions and discuss the making of the movie and his experience working with the two late industry legends.

During the AFS Artist Spotlight the next evening, the Texas Film Hall of Fame member will be joined onstage by director and Austin icon Richard Linklater. There, the friends and frequent collaborators will hold a conversation providing insight into Hawke’s process and craft, showing clips from his career and touching on both his well-known works and under-the-radar accomplishments.

“Ethan is such an interesting artist, not only because of his incredible work as an actor but his work as a writer,” says AFS associate artistic director Holly Herrick. “He’s had a lot of success as an artist on screen [and] onstage as well. Additionally, he’s a film director. He’s very comprehensive in his work as an artist, and that’s what we’re excited to show.”

Events will take place February 17th and 18th at the Marchesa Theatre. For details and tickets, head here.
