A man (Harry Dean Stanton) wanders out of the desert not knowing who he is. His brother finds him, and helps to pull his memory back of the life he led before he walked out on his family and disappeared four years earlier.


This special screening will be followed by a Q&A with legendary filmmaker Allison Anders moderated by bestselling novelist Silas House. Allison Anders is well-known for her classics of independent cinema including Gas Food Lodging and Mi Vida Loca, but before she became a celebrated film director she was a production assistant on PARIS, TEXAS. An exchange that she had on the set of that film with fellow Kentuckian Harry Dean Stanton helped inform both the character of Travis Henderson and Anders' own future. A lifetime of friendship followed.
