"August Evening" to return

Posted at 4:12 PM on October 1, 2008 by Euan Kerr

Earlier this year Texan film director Chris Eska came to Minnesota to try to drum up support for his film "August Evening" which was in the running for an Independant Spirit Award.

It must have worked because Eska won the John Cassavetes Award for best film made for under $500,000. Actually he made it for just $40,000 and it is a wonderful little film about illegal immigrants living and working in a Texas border town.

Eska made the film in Spanish, even though he doesn't speak Spanish himself.

Now Twin Citians can get a chance to see the film again as it's going to have a week long run at the Parkway starting October 24th.

Eska will introduce the film along with members of the cast, and "Sweet Land" director Ali Selim who is a great champion of the film. You can catch the trailer here.
