Ferus Film

The Albuquerque Film Festival is scheduled to return Aug. 18 through 21. Organizers are gearing up, though, with a special Summer Kick-Off event. The brand-new art documentary The Cool School will be screened to the public on Tuesday, June 7, at 7 p.m. at the KiMo Theatre. The film focuses on L.A.’s seminal Ferus Gallery, which molded a loose band of idealistic beatniks (Ed Kienholz, Ed Ruscha, Ed Moses—lotta Eds—Craig Kauffman, Robert Irwin and Larry Bell among them) into icons of the modern art movement. Ferus, as a lot of art lovers know, was the very first place to dedicate a solo show to pop art icon Andy Warhol. Larry Bell will be joining fellow Ferus artist Terry Allen for a Q and A after the film. Actor/artist Dean Stockwell, one of the experts interviewed in the film, will also be in attendance. This is a fundraiser for Film 4 Change and the AFF. A suggested $10 donation gets you in the door. For more info, log on to abqfilmfestival.com.

The Lama Lies Down on Broadway

The RigDzin Dharma Foundation, a well-known Tibetan Buddhist center here in Albuquerque, is sponsoring a visit from His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche. The renowned lama is stopping in Albuquerque for a brief stay June 2 through 5. Kicking off the visit is a benefit screening of the documentary film For the Benefit of All Beings. The film traces Garchen Rinpoche’s inspiring life—which included imprisonment as a Tibetan resistance fighter for more than 20 years. The screening will feature introductory talks by Garchen Rinpoche and filmmaker Christina Lundberg (Mystic Tibet, On the Road Home). Tickets start at $10. All proceeds are considered donations to the film project and will go toward the creation of the documentary’s DVD. The screening takes place Thursday, June 2, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway SE). You can purchase tickets (including VIP seating) at rigdzindharma.org.
