“Seeks out the incidental beauties of nature with a keenness that would make Terrence Malick proud.” Variety
YAKONA returns to Texas with a live score performance by the Montopolis Chamber Ensemble, conducted by Okkervil River pianist and composer Justin Sherburn. Since premiering at SXSW 2014 and winning an Audience Choice Award in the Visions Category, YAKONA has screened across North America, garnering rave reviews and awards. Sherburn and his sextet featuring string trio, percussion and an opera singer will accompany a screening of the film with a live performance of the immersive and powerful score.
YAKONA is an impressionistic journey down the San Marcos River. The film travels from source to sea, through the changing seasons, interpreting the river’s time and memory, and documenting the relationship between ourselves and the natural world.
