Phil Duran, writer and director of “Missing You,” retired after twenty years from a career in law enforcement and began making films. One of his earlier works, “The Righteous and the Wicked,” is currently distributed on DVD by Lionsgate.
“Phoenix,” the short film that precedes “Missing You,” is a haunting tale about a boy coming of age in a post-apocalyptic world, who is torn between saving the life of his father and running away with a beautiful adventuress. It was forged during the Albuquerque 48-hour film project this July and marks the directorial debut of Sarah Northrop, who served as assistant director on “Missing You.” It was co-written by Northrop and Giuseppe Quinn, photographed by Craig Butler, and stars Phil Duran, Merritt Glover and Dylan Montoya.
Reel New Mexico screens films with a New Mexico connection, on the second Thursday of each month, at 7 p.m. in The Performance Space in La Tienda, off Avenida Vista Grande at 285.

“My three daughters know little of my childhood years, the many places I lived while growing up, and of my maternal grandparents with their distinctive old-world culture. As I mine these almost forgotten remembrances I realize how much my world differed from theirs. It is for them that I write.” — AJ Melnick

Barbarians at the Gate
Stravinsky, Diaghilev & the Ballets Russes
On Thursday, April 5th, 2012 at 6:00 p.m., a multimedia presentation entitled Barbarians at the Gate – Stravinsky, Diaghilev & the Ballets Russes, narrated by Tom Maguire, will be offered free to the general public at the Performance Space at La Tienda at 7 Caliente Road in Eldorado. This event is presented by Destiny Allison Fine Art as part of the salon series: Art in the 21st Century.
This presentation will offer a detailed look at the time between the first season of Serge Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes in 1909 and Diaghilev’s death in Venice two decades later. Mr. Maguire will examine the artistic forces and personalities that forged a reinvigoration of the art of ballet. The presentation will also explore the effect that the visual artists, composers, librettists, choreographers, dancers and designers associated with the Ballets Russes had, not only on that organization, but also on their own art forms and the cultural life of Europe in general. The presentation will concentrate on the work of composers Stravinsky, Ravel, Milhaud, Satie, Debussy and Prokofiev; visual artists Benois, Picasso, Rouault, Gris, Picabia, Bakst and Braque and choreographers Fokine, Massine, Nijinsky, Nijinska and Balanchine. These artists and their influence on the artistic life of Europe, in general, and Paris, in particular, will be chronicled; along with the aristocrats, members of high society and the business class, donors and sponsors who made their work possible.
Mr. Maguire augments the research he has done on the Ballets Russes with material gleaned from the most recent publications on the subject. Visual and musical materials are selected from several sources including Mr. Maguire’s extensive collection. Barbarians at the Gate dramatically explores the artistic explosion that Serge Diaghilev unleashed on Western Europe as he brought; first visual arts, then opera and finally ballet from mother Russia to the salons and theatres of Paris. In stunning visuals accompanied by music clips, Barbarians at the Gate traces not only the history of the company, but also its effect on all of the arts in the early 20th century.
