Awl pals Tim Sutton and Seth Bomse have been known to make surprisingly watchable short films starring a not-so-good-looking aging person puttering around his apartment. So imagine what they might do with attractive teenagers diving into a glassy Appalachian lake, or hiking through a lush summer forest, or riding bikes in the desert at sunset. People who attend this year's South-by-Southwest Film Festival won't even have to imagine it, as Sutton's first full-length feature film, Pavilion, has been chosen as one the festival's "Emerging Visions" selections, and will have its world premiere in Austin between March 9th and 17th. Seth edited the film, which has an original score by The Sea and Cake's Sam Prekop—who wrote the languid and beautiful "Parasol" for his band's 1995 album Nassau. Pavilion is kind of like that, but as a movie.
