Miles to go before Austin and me … sleep
Director: Jim Hall
The film took 42 years to finish. Austin trusted his story to a teenager with his first film camera and project. He died knowing that promise was broken. Peabody Award winner Jim Hall now finds closure for himself and the documentary first shot in the 1970’s. The promise now fulfilled as a FilmPoem, an Ode to all those who march to a different drummer…the distant beat and measure only heard in the human heart.
Director: Benjamin Strack
