New Mexico PBS presents a special screening of the “final release” version of the locally produced documentary film Awakening in Taos: The Mabel Dodge Luhan Story. The event takes place Sunday, Feb. 17 at 7pm at the historic KiMo Theatre (423 Central Ave. NW). The film recounts the personal life journey of wealthy writer, salon hostess, arts patroness and champion of women’s and Native American rights Mabel Dodge Luhan. In 1917 the local legend moved from Greenwich Village in New York to Taos, N.M., where she fell in love with full-blooded Tiwa Indian Antonio Luhan and lured luminaries like Georgia O’Keefe, Ansel Adams and D.H. Lawrence to the Land of Enchantment. Actress Ali McGraw, who narrates the documentary, has agreed to participate in a live, post-film Q&A alongside director-producer Mark Gordon and other members of the cast and crew. Before the film Bruce Standing Deer, a Taos Pueblo Native and Tony Luhan’s great-grandson, will perform his own songs accompanied by singer/songwriter John Carey. Tickets for this special event are $20 or $15 for students and seniors. Tickets are available now at kimotickets.com. Prior to the 7pm screening, there will be a free preview matinee of the film (starting at 2pm) for students, seniors, Native Americans and the handicapped. Special guests will not be in attendance. To secure one of these free tickets, register at kimotickets.com The film airs on our local PBS stations starting Feb. 28.
