As part of A New Landscape/A Possible Horizon 2021 Texas Biennial, award-winning Austin-based filmmaker PJ Raval presents this guided tour of selected highlights from his career examining social justice issues through the voices of queer and marginalized subjects. The conversation will feature clips from definitive film work, including his latest groundbreaking project in progress. He’ll also discuss how his growing up as a queer, first-generation Filipino American in a small, white, conservative town in California’s central valley shaped his filmmaking practice.

His work has been supported by the Guggenheim Foundation, Bertha Foundation, Arcus Foundation, Sundance, Center for Asian-American Media, Tribeca Film Institute, Firelight Media, PBS, and the Ford Foundation.

In the case of inclement weather, outdoor programs will be relocated to our indoor space (for the same date and time), which will have a reduced capacity and require masking. 

HCAS COVID-19 policy requires attendees to show proof of a negative test (PCR) within 48 hours prior to the program, or guests who are fully vaccinated may bring proof of vaccination as a substitute for a negative test result.
