For 15 years, the annual Fantastic Fest has taken over Austin with the weirdest, wildest sci-fi, horror and fantasy flicks that cinema has to offer. Filmmakers and fans from across the globe will converge at the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar for eight days during the world’s largest genre film festival, which kicks off on Sept. 19.
On this week's episode of I Love You So Much, the Austin360 Podcast, we're talking about one of those movies: "VHYes," directed and co-written by Jack Henry Robbins. His father, Academy Award-winning actor Tim Robbins, produced and acted in the retro comedy shot entirely on VHS and Betamax. The film follows a 12-year-old boy with a video camcorder as he documents life, late-night TV and all kinds of absurdity. Our podcast producer, Alyssa Vidales, chatted with Tim Robbins about "VHYes," how home recording culture has evolved and what it was like to collaborate with his son.
Listen to that conversation in this week's episode. "VHYes" screens during Fantastic Fest at 8 p.m. Sept. 21 and 11:30 p.m. Sept. 23 at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar.
