The Austin Film Society is screening two of the buzzier documentaries of late 2014 this weekend.
First up, at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Marchesa, is “Happy Valley,” Amir Bar-Lev’s look at the
Penn State/Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal. The screening is free for AFS members and $10 for the rest of you people.
AFS is also screening the three-hour “National Gallery,” the great Frederick Wiseman’s latest, which looks at everyday life at London’s National Gallery, one of the world’s greatest museums. “Gallery” is showing at noon Sunday and 2 p.m. Jan. 11 at the Marchesa.
The legendary documentarian will participate in a Q&A, via video conference, after the Sunday screening.
