Upcoming Events January 2 – 9

O'KeeffeOn Thursday, January 8 at 7 PM, REEL NEW MEXICO will present Mother O’Keeffe, an interesting and opening documentary about famed artist Georgia O’Keeffe. The film is narrated by former New Mexico resident, Marsha Mason and produced and directed by fellow El Dorado resident, Richard Startzman, who will be our guest..  This film is one hour long and was released in 2007 and offers a very different look at artist Georgia O’Keeffe.

The documentary explores the relationship Georgia O’Keeffe had with a young boy whom she taught how to paint and continues to explore the controversy surrounding the identity of who really painted some of the most acclaimed watercolors of the 20th century.

You are now able to order and bring food and drink from La Plancha and enjoy it in the Performance Space, offering a casual dinner and a movie type event.

The $5 suggested donation/admission at the door will go for expenses and to bring in filmmakers for other screenings.

bagdad cafe

On Thursday, November 13, at 7 pmREEL NEW MEXICO will present the delightful comedy, shot on Route 66, BAGDAD CAFE at the Performance Space at La Tienda in Eldorado.

‘Bagdad Cafe” an adorable comic fable set in a ramshackle motel-restaurant on the edge of the Mojave Desert, is West German director Percy Adlon’s first English-language film. It is a triumphant teaming of Marianne Sagebrecht, the irresistible Rubens-esque star of Adlon’s “Sugarbaby,” and the formidable African American actress CCH Pounder.

This sparkling little gem is not just a hilarious and touching account of the friendship that develops between two women of jarringly different cultures. It also offers a renewed, endearingly quirky vision of America as the land of opportunity, not in the economic sense, but as a place with plenty of room for self-discovery and individuality.

Adlon celebrates the possibilities of a uniquely American sense of community, of harmony between disparate peoples, with an unabashed zest and affection that recalls vintage Frank Capra optimism, filtered through the sophisticated European detachment of a Billy Wilder.

Progressing from bleak reality to Utopian fantasy, “Bagdad Cafe,” which offers the flip side of “Paris, Texas,” is an inspired charmer of the first order abounding in images that recall the quaintly tinted post cards that preserve the history of roadside America. Shot entirely at a roadside cafe/motel in the Mojave Desert, the film was later turned into a television series which starred Whoopi Goldberg and Jean Stapleton.    (LA TIMES)
