Please join Taos filmmakers and artists, Andrea Heckman and Ken O’Neil in conversations with visiting Geshe Murig Nyima Kunchap Rinpoche from Dolpo, Nepal, land of ancient sacred landscapes and Bon traditions. Geshe Nyima is founder of the Dolpo Bon Society, the Bon Dolpo School, the Nepal Bon Religion Association, and is the current head lama of the Nepal Bon Religion Society. The Dalai Lama has stated that Bon is Tibet's oldest spiritual tradition and as the indigenous source of Tibetan culture played a significant role in shaping Tibet's unique identity. 

The evening includes a sneak preview of the new documentary film, Bon in Dolpo, which their team including Tad Fettig and Dr. Quigley Peterson filmed with Geshe Nyima’s help last August in Dolpo. The journey included hiking for 18 days over four passes in Upper Dolpo above 17,000’. They will tell tales of the journey and discuss the ancient beliefs, rituals, and practices in this remote area of the world.

"Keep it Spinning"

The Harwood Museum of Art invites you to join them for a very special event!

Taos Charter School and Teatro Serpiente are bringing original musical theater to Taos. The group is launching their after-school theater program called Keep it Spinning.

Throughout the six week program students will have the opportunity to create original songs, learn the basics of acting, directing and stagecraft, and most importantly work collaboratively on a creative adventure. The project’s final result is a weekend of performances at The Harwood Museum of Art. Students will experience the satisfaction of performing their work for family and friends at a professional theater in Taos.  Gina Gargone, member of Teatro Serpiente and contributing Artist to Keep it Spinning says "Fostering creativity in our youth and also teaching them the fine art of group collaboration — allowing each voice to be heard while blending unique perspectives into a cohesive whole- for me it’s the entire essence of what it means to effectively communicate."  

Directed by Rich Greywolf, Scott Tennant, and Adam Overley, with musical direction by Laura Bulkin.

Funding for this project was provided for by two grants from the Taos Community Foundations.

Tickets: $10.00 for General Public and $8.00 for Alliance Member and $5.00 for youth under 18 years old.

Film: Ernest and Celestine
Friday, May 23 - Saturday, May 24, 2014 - May 23, 2014 7:00 pm and matinee at 1:00 on May 24, 2014

Film: Ernest and Celestine

Arthur Bell Auditorium

The Harwood Museum of Art and Emerging Cinema is proud to present Ernest and Celestine

Directed by Benjamin Renner, Vincent Patar and Stephane Aubier Starring Forest Whitaker, Mackenzie Foy, Lauren Bacall, Paul Giamatti, William H Macy, Jeffrey Wright, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman English 1 hr 20 mins, rated PG From the producers of “The Triplets of Belville” and “The Secret of Kells”… Deep below snowy, cobblestone streets, tucked away in networks of winding subterranean tunnels, lives a civilization of hardworking mice, terrified of the bears who live above ground. Unlike her fellow mice, Celestine is an artist and a dreamer – and when she nearly ends up as breakfast for ursine troubadour Ernest, the two form an unlikely bond. But it isn’t long before their friendship is put on trial by their respective bear-fearing and mice-eating communities. Fresh from standing ovations at Cannes and Toronto, Ernest & Celestine joyfully leaps across genres and influences to capture the kinetic, limitless possibilities of animated storytelling. Like a gorgeous watercolor painting brought to life, a constantly shifting pastel color palette bursts and drips across the screen, while wonderful storytelling and brilliant comic timing draw up influences as varied as Buster Keaton, Bug Bunny and the outlaw romanticism of Bonnie and Clyde. Bringing it all together is the on-screen chemistry between the two lead characters – a flowing, tender and playful rapport that will put a smile on your face and make your heart grow. Based on the classic Belgian book series by Gabrielle Vincent, Ernest & Celestine won France’s César Award for Best Animated Feature, and has been nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 86th Academy Awards®.
