Paul Collins and Anlo Sepulveda, the makers of the film Yakona, which just won the SXSW Audience Choice Award, say they were inspired by the San Marcos River, the subject of the film, over years of swimming and snorkeling in the river. “Find an idea that really makes you tick and express it to the best of your ability. Most likely if you are true to yourself, it will resonate with others,” Sepulveda says in an interview published in LoveHays.com. The film will be shown at the Texas Wild Rice Festival in San Marcos on April 12.
