Crazy Carl and His Man-Boobs: An Austin Love Story
(USA) RT: 50 mins


Director: Mike Woolf (In Attendance)

Also in Attendance: Crazy Carl Hickerson and Charlotte Ferris


Crazy Carl and His Man-Boobs: An Austin Love Story is an enlightening tale about one of Austin, Texas' most eccentric personalities who is still 'Keeping Austin Weird."  A hippie, flower spinner and perennial city council candidate, Crazy Carl Hickerson was on the front row during the decade that defined  the free-spirited and fun-loving Austin.  He is the perfect character through which to experience the cultural, economic and psychedelic forces that came together in the 1970's to make Austin, Austin.  Crazy Carl reminds us of the old Austin before it spins away.

Director: Eric Hueber (in attendance)

Cast: Lindsay Pulsipher, Glenn Morshower, Johnathan Huth Jr. (all in attendance)

Two months after her husband walked out on her to become a musician, single mother JoLynn struggles to support her son Johnathan in the face of poverty and his troubling glaucoma. To make up for the fact that his prescribed medicine only causes further irritation, JoLynn turns to cultivating her own hydroponic marijuana to combat his symptoms. After Johnathan is left home with his pet pig WeeWee, problems arise which raise the concern of Johnathan's grandparents. With the help of Curtis, an unexpected role model, JoLynn will fight to keep her son close. Flutter wonderfully displays the unyielding love a mother has for her son and the wild dreams a young boy has for adventure.
