A Q&A with Peacock will directly follow the screening.

Carrying the weight of looming family tragedy and past heartbreaks, young artist August finds herself in limbo as she quietly goes through the motions at family gatherings, her job at a photo processing business, her own artist presentations, gallery openings, and awkward relationships. This personal, poetic film portrait conveys the mixed emotions of growing into independent adulthood, as well as celebrating photography and capturing slices of both rural and urban East Texas life. Inspired by director Emily Peacock’s personal experiences during her own mother’s illness and death in 2015, August is ultimately about the need to connect, grow, and find one’s own path.

August was written and directed by Peacock, produced by Peter Lucas, and stars Sophie Farzam. Run time: 27 minutes.
