Houston Premieres film screening: Houston

HanWay Films

Corporate headhunter Clemens Trunschka (Ulrich Tukur from The Lives of Others) is sent on a mission to recruit the CEO of Houston Petrol for a German car company. Failed attempts to connect with the man lead Trunschka deeper into his jet-lag and whiskey-induced daze, causing him to slip further from reality until his perception no longer matches the world around him.

Local audiences will recognize many of the film's locations as well as how it evokes aspects of Paris, Texas, the 1984 Wim Wenders film. Houston won a special jury prize at the Boston Independent Film Festival.
