An inspiring portrait of an artist who always finds something to do. If producers want to give him a lot of money, he’ll take it. If they don’t, he’s perfectly happy to head back to Texas and shoot movies for pennies in his own backyard. – AV Club

The rare documentary tribute in which you actually believe that all its interviewees only have positive things to say about the subject, especially once it delves into Linklater’s inextricable links to Austin’s independent film scene — the one has grown with the other. – The Village Voice


Lakeshore Records is very pleased to release Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), out now digitally!  The album features score by Graham Reynolds (Before Midnight, Bernie, A Scanner Darkly).  See album and film details below.

Sundance Selects presents RICHARD LINKLATER: DREAM IS DESTINY, in theaters and on VOD now (rent it on iTunes)!

Yes, directors Louis Black (who, coincidentally, is a founder of SXSW) and Karen Bernstein give us the view of an artist reflecting on their work but what stands out in this trailer is the sense that they wanted to capture the place where Linklaker has made many of his films. – /Films

Dream is Destiny is remarkably intimate… – Vogue


A feature-length documentary on the life and work of filmmaker, Richard Linklater.   Produced and Directed by Louis Black (founder of SXSW Festivals and the Austin Chronicle), this documentary for PBS’ American Masters series is an unusual look at a fiercely independent style of filmmaking that arose from Austin, Texas in the 1980s/ early 90’s.  It is an unconventional look at how Linklater’s films of that period, Slacker, Dazed and Confused and Before Sunrise, sparked a low budget, in your own backyard movement in this country and around the world.

This documentary takes the viewer from the Academy Awards for the acclaimed, Boyhood, and an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Linklater’s latest film, Everybody Wants Some, to be released by Paramount and Annapurna Pictures in the Spring of 2016. Throughout the film, Richard Linklater himself addresses his own life at mid-career point, at times while embarrassed and shy. He tells of the influential array of filmmakers, playwrights and criminals that continue to form his own independent work, and the philosophical modalities which have guided the path; all in conversation with Louis Black, an Austin-based journalist who has known him since the 1980’s.

Other interviews include Ethan Hawke, Jack Black, Matthew McConaughey, Jonathan Demme, and Sandra Adair , Julie Delpy, members of the Linklater family, Clark Walker and more.
