Hogan’s Fable

An Oklahoma City filmmaker’s feature film debut is set to premiere at this weekend’s Austin Film Festival.


Features

Molly Evans
One cold night in early January 2011, an Oklahoma City-based filmmaker returned from a drink at the bar to housesit his parents’ old, empty abode. But the familiarity of the attic, staircase and the basement door quickly faded when a mass blackout affected the entire neighborhood. Vinnie Hogan has replayed this horrifying scenario since childhood, and he met this dark fate not only with the illumination of his cellphone but also with the idea for his first feature film.
