Kal Spelletich and Seth Malice in ‘Slacker’

“Slacker”, the influential 1991 independent film by Richard Linklater, helped kicked off the independent film revival in the 1990s.

Two of our good friends in the San Francisco arts community, who used to live in Austin and were friends with Richard Linklater, appeared as characters in the film.

Machine artist Kal Spelletich plays the part of “video backpacker”.

Writer and artist Seth Malice plays the part of “Scooby Doo philosopher”.
