CHALK at Austin Film Festival

This is probably one of my all time favorite films to come out of Austin. It's sweet, laugh out loud funny and has a huge, huge heart. I hope you can go support these guys. They made a wonderful film.

SAT OCT 21st, 7PM, IMAX
TUE OCT 24th, 7PM, REGAL ARBOR

SYNOPSIS:
In the comedic tradition of The Office and the films of Christopher Guest, Chalk pulls its viewer into the frenetic and awkwardly painful journey of three novice high school teachers as they navigate one memorable school year. Director Mike Akel provides a rare and realistic teacher’s perspective into the absurd, provocative and occasionally volatile world of public education, where “fifty percent of America’s teachers quit within their first three years.” Ultimately as touching as it is comedic, Chalk offers a hilarious and hopeful look at public education in America.
