Most famous for her celebrated photograph Migrant Mother, Dorothea Lange's enduring images document five turbulent decades of American history. Lange’s granddaughter, the longtime Santa Fean and Award-winning cinematographer, Dyanna Taylor, directs and narrates this intimate documentary that combines family memories with never-before-seen photos and film footage. This CCA fundraiser features an post-film Q&A with Dyanna Taylor and Elizabeth Partridge, Lange’s biographer, followed by booksigning and pie-and-coffee reception.Read More...
In the 1960s, two conventional Harvard professors began probing the edges of consciousness. Over the next five decades, the two greatly impact modern thought, Timothy Leary as a counter-cultural legend and Richard Alpert as Ram Dass, a spiritual teacher. Gay Dillingham’s film, narrated by Robert Redford, offers an intimate portrait of an epic friendship, through life and into the next realm. (U.S., 2014, 95m)

After years researching her film about our increasingly surveillance nation, Laura Poitras began receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by U.S. intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. (U.S., 2014, 118m, DCP, Radius TWC)

During a joint residency at the Center for Land Use Interpretation in Wendover, Utah, Patrick Kikut, David Jones and Shelby Shadwell produced an exhibition of new art that investigates the spirit of place. Colleagues in the art department at University of Wyoming, these three Laramie-based artists worked in collaboration and individually to create a cohesive body of work in multiple media that responds to military history, salt, pioneers, mining equipment, nomadicism, and more.
