DREAM IS DESTINY is a feature-length documentary film on the life and work of Richard Linklater. Produced/Directed by Louis Black and Karen Bernstein, DREAM IS DESTINY is an unusual look at a fiercely independent film style that emerged from Austin, Texas in the 1990s, and the impact on a generation of do it yourself filmmakers who craved a career off the Hollywood/NYC grid. RICHARD LINKLATER - DREAM IS DESTINY charts the course of his career on and off the studio grid, from his groundbreaking film, SLACKER in 1991, to the award-winning BOYHOOD (2014) and includes behind the scenes footage from his soon-to-be-released college comedy, EVERYBODY WANTS SOME.
