Mar 13, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

The film Omar and Cedric, If This Ever Gets Weird, featuring Rodríguez-López, and directed by Nicolas Jack Davies, is screening in the SXSW Film & TV Festival: https://schedule.sxsw.com/2024/films/2197059

As a filmmaker & composer, Omar Rodríguez-López has always documented his life & the careers of his bands on film.

Handing over decades worth of intimate & personal footage to Director Nicolas Jack Davies to tell the story of Omar & Cedric in "Omar & Cedric: If This Ever Gets Weird" took an immense amount of trust, creative understanding & faith.

This session will focus on the themes of Trust & Creativity in creating art, as discussed by filmmaker Nicolas Jack Davies and composer/filmmaker Omar Rodríguez-López (The Mars Volta, At The Drive-In), each with their unique perspective on the subject material.
