BALLAD OF AJ WEBERMAN screens Thursday

On Thursday, May 3rd, 2007, Austin Film Festival invites you to a special one-night-only screening of the award winning feature length documentary THE BALLAD OF A.J WEBERMAN. The screening will be held at the Alamo Drafthouse Lake Creek at 7:30 PM and will feature a special "garbology" themed menu in honor of the film. Admission is free for Austin Film Festival members and just $4 for non-members. The Austin Film Festival hosts screenings on the first Thursday of every month at the Alamo Lake Creek Theater.


'The Ballad of A.J Weberman' is a documentary film that observes the obsession of A.J Weberman, Bob Dylan's most infamous fan and founder of garbology, the study of trash. As Weberman attempts to understand Dylan's world, the film portrays just how far he will go to get the information he craves. An animated depiction of a recorded conversation between Dylan and Weberman depicts the bizarre relationship these men share. Through 'Dylanology,' Weberman attempts to analyze every aspect of Dylan's life and career in his own erratic way."

The film won the Raindance Award from the British Independent Film Awards. For more information visit www.balladofajweberman.com
