NM-made film explores O'Keeffe's later years
Considered the mother of American modernism, the legacy of Georgia O'Keeffe is revered, admired and studied and for some, is the topic of fascination.
On Thursday, Reel New Mexico presents Mother O'Keeffe, a 2007 film based on the artist.
"It's a really interesting look at O'Keeffe," Reel NM's programmer and host Jeff Berg advances. "It points out the fact that she might have had someone else doing the work for her."
The film is directed by Eldorado resident Richard Startzman, who will be present at the screening, and is narrated by New Mexico resident Marsha Mason.
The state tie-in, Berg says, is at the core of the monthly Reel series.
"I'm a New Mexico film historian, and it's just about getting films out there to the public—New Mexico-shot films—for a bit of history and fun."
"It's not the usual," he continues on this week's selection. "It gives you something to think about. Looks at the other side, shall we say."
