Andrew Garrison’s Trash Dance Has a Theatrical Release in Austin

Filmmaker Andrew Garrison’s 68 minute documentary set in Austin was screened during the 2012 SXSW Film Festival on March 10th in Austin and went on to participate in Canada’s Edmonton International Film Festival and Poland’s Warsaw Film Festival later last year, where it was nominated for the Free Spirit Award.

When I viewed during SXSW at the Paramount Theater, I was totally impressed with the story behind the film and the artistic beauty created by choreographer Allison Orr. The film also captures how some of the City of Austin staff members were hesitant at first, but the viewer does see how the staff involved in this film project definitely do change and feel prouder overall for the work that they do.

For my fellow Austinites who may not have had the opportunity to see the film at last year’s SXSW Film Festival, Trash Dance is opening at the Violet Crown Cinema in downtown Austin as of today, May 3rd. It is a lovely venue and highly appropriate for the work of art that it is and the pride it has brought to Austin.
