Thursday night in the studio

The feature programming Thursday night was the premier of Citizen Architect: Samuel Mockbee and the Spirit of the Rural Studio and the people of Central Texas spoke loud and clear in support of the Austin film scene and their local PBS station.

KLRU staff were joined in the studio with volunteers from the Austin Film Society as well as the film’s producer and director, Sam Wainwright Douglas. Throughout the evening Sam shared stories about the production of the film, how he got interested in the Rural Studio and why community support is crucial for local filmmakers.

Special thanks to our volunteers from the Austin Film Society, tireless champions of Austin’s film scene.

Citizen Architect broadcasts nationally on PBS August 23rd. KLRU is proud to be the presenting station of this film.
