Preview Screening: Scenes from ‘Man of Many Colors’

December 12 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


For one engagement only, filmmaker Mark Gordon will be in attendance to present scenes from his upcoming documentary Man of Many Colors preceding a special Director’s Cut screening of his previous documentary Awakening in Taos: the Mabel Dodge Luhan Story. Gordon will be joined by members of the production team for an introduction and Q&A.

Man of Many Colors is the second installment in Gordon’s documentary trilogy. The film tells the story of Blue Spruce Standing Deer, the great-grandson of Tony Lujan and Mabel Dodge who we met in the first film in the series. This Native American artist from Taos Pueblo discovers his heritage and true identity only after the Bureau of Indian Affairs displaces him to the urban sprawl of California. Mabel Dodge Luhan was a trailblazing feminist writer and activist for women and Native American rights. In 1917 she moved from Greenwich Village, New York to Taos, New Mexico.
