Bo Parker speaks in torrents. His conversation, cloaked with the terminology of marketing and design, crackles with ideas.
The 32-year-old isn’t a screenwriter or director, but he has big plans to change the city’s film culture on several fronts, and the sharply intense Fort Worth native talks a convincing game. The first step is on Wednesday evening at the Modern Art Museum, where Parker’s new company, Kinetiq HD, will screen Chris Bowman’s dramedy American Fork, which stars Hubbel Palmer (who also wrote the DELETE and will be attending) as a 400-pound grocery store clerk who dreams of being a professional actor. Palmer’s co-stars include the likes of William Baldwin, 24’s Mary Lynn Rajskub, and Oscar nominee Kathleen Quinlan, but the movie hasn’t yet found a distributor. That’s exactly why Parker, who saw the movie at last year’s AFI Dallas Film Festival, is showing it.
