Trailer Park: SXSW Film Day 5

Three picks (and clips) from today's screenings

South by Southwest Music shows start tonight, so mapping out your day's schedule just got a little trickier. For the duration of the Fest, we're posting a few trailers for the day's films to help you make some of those tough decisions. With these three picks, you'll be out in time for happy hour.

This is … the Trailer Park.

The Retrieval

Narrative Feature Competition, World Premiere
Tuesday, March 12, 11:15am, Violet Crown

Quentin Tarantino brought post-Civil War politics to big screens in December with Django Unchained. Now this competition film by director Chris Eska covers some of the same ground – literally – in a quiet, more restrained format.

Mr. Angel

Documentary Spotlight, World Premiere
Tuesday, March 12, 1:45pm, Alamo Ritz

Buck Angel was born female. Now he's making a name for himself with his genre-bending work in pornography. See how he got from point A to point B in this documentary from director Dan Hunt.

Rewind This!

Documentary Spotlight, World Premiere
Tuesday, March 12, 3:45pm, Violet Crown

VHS brought the video home and leveled the playing field between no-budget experiments and blockbuster mega-hits. This feature from director Josh Johnson bills itself as "the definitive story of the home video revolution."
