The evening features a screening of the documentary film Awakening in Taos: The Mabel Dodge Luhan Story followed by a Q&A with writer/director Mark Gordon.

Awakening in Taos is a made-in-New Mexico documentary. It relates the untold story of Mabel Dodge Luhan, a remarkable woman; a writer and advocate for the arts, women’s rights and Native American culture. 

Awakening In Taos is a labor of love for director/writer Mark Gordon. He fell in love with the Mabel Dodge Luhan story years ago when he read Edge of Taos Desert and realized that bringing this story to a wide audience was his personal calling. Since then he has dedicated himself to doing everything possible to successfully complete this production. Mark Gordon is a fine artist, graphic designer, photographer, web developer, and independent filmmaker. For more information about the project, go to awakeningintaos.com.
