Arts Fifth Avenue Box Office


The nature documentary "YAKONA" is an impressionistic journey down the San Marcos River. The film travels from source to sea, through the changing seasons, interpreting the river’s time and memory, and documenting the relationship between ourselves and the natural world. Justin Sherburn and the Montopolis Chamber Ensemble featuring string trio, percussion and an opera singer, will accompany a screening of the film with a live performance of the immersive and powerful original score.

This event is a joint production of A5A and Montopolis supported by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts.

Since premiering at SXSW 2014 and winning an Audience Choice Award in the Visions Category, YAKONA has screened across North America, garnering rave reviews and awards.

“A contemplation of the river told with stunning cinematography.” The Globe and Mail

“Making a far more effective case for environmental protection than a dozen “Inconvenient Truth” knock­offs.” ­­ Variety
