Filmmakers James Benning and Richard Linklater have been friends and colleagues for decades. Here, we follow the two iconoclasts over the course of a few days in Austin and Bastrop, Texas, as the two filmmakers present Benning's films at the Austin Film Society, play baseball at Linklater's home, visit old shooting locations and talk about their respective filmmaking trajectories over long meals and hikes.
