Dazed and Confused

Alright, alright, alright, you know the drill: Small-town Texas teens get stoned, hazed, and hang out with a mustachioed young Matthew McConaughey. (Also a young Ben Affleck, but who cares?) Tight pants, keggers, moms with guns. Classic stuff. Directed by Richard Linklater whose Everybody Wants Some!!, billed as a "spiritual sequel" to Dazed and Confused, screens the next day ($10). Free with RSVP. Fri., April 1, 9:30 p.m. Plaza Theatre, Main Screen, 1049 Ponce de Leon Ave. N.E.

__[http://sched.co/6Qzd|Honoring Victor Nunez: Ruby in Paradise
The Florida filmmaker is an ATLFF alum. He debuted his first feature at the 1979 festival and his Oscar-nominated Ulee's Gold starring Peter Fonda closed the 1997 fest. Nunez introduced Ashley Judd in 1993's Ruby in Paradise, an award-winning coming-of-age story. Nunez will be in attendance at the screening. Free with RSVP. Sat., April 7, 7 p.m. Hill Auditorium, High Museum, 1280 Peachtree St.

"it's so easy (the mechanism of power)"

A very meta, very Big Brother-sounding collaborative art installation by Russell Sheaffer and Aaron Michael Smith, the work uses surveillance footage taken of Sheaffer, a filmmaker, during last year's festival for a presentation at this year's event, which will also include cameras pointed at the art show's attendees. Sheaffer, who was being watched following a legal dispute, takes the opportunity to build a complicated visual web where the watcher becomes the watched and vice versa. Also features percussionist Sean Gill. Free. April 2-10, noon-9 p.m. 1107 Euclid Ave. (next to 7 Stages).


Sound + Vision

The five-year-old event moves from the Goat Farm to Ponce City Market this year to present its spread of local food, music, and art. This year's event will debut the virtual reality film Interrupture, the true story of an 11-year-old Syrian girl trying to escape ISIS. Free. Thurs., April 7, 7 p.m. Ponce City Market, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave. N.E.]__
