Print Austin: Jay Bolotin’s “The Jackleg Testament Part I: The Story of Jack & Eve.” Jay Bolotin won Best Animation at the 2007 Santa Fe Film Festival for “The Jackleg Testament Part I: The Story of Jack & Eve,” a beguiling 60-minute animated film made from 40 handmade woodcut prints. A reinterpretation of the Biblical story of Adam and Eve, “Jackleg Testament” fuses a Southern Gothic sensibility with American folk art style and with a little traditional Renaissance imagery. Bolotin composed the original score, an operatic soundtrack with a folk music twang. The film is presented by Landmarks, the University of Texas public art program as part of Print Austin, the month-long festival of fine art printing. Bolotin will be on hand for a question-and-answer session after the screening. 5:30 p.m. Thursday. Off Center, 2211 Hidalgo St. Free. printaustin.org.
