These are the words of Kristen Woolf, director, actor, set designer, trained opera singer and performer. When recognition of the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic hit, she was mid-sentence directing Edward Albee's "Seascape" for Taos Onstage.

Arron Shiver was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 40 some years ago, and spent a great deal of his youth in Taos.

He was married for several years, to artist Anaïs Rumfelt (who appears on our cover with their son, Jackson). He has appeared in many motion pictures and television shows, as well as onstage. He lives in Los Angeles but visits often. His mother, Melody Swann, founder of Cowgirls Design, still lives here, and Jackson Shiver splits his time between LA and Taos. more

A film by Pedro Costa titled “Vitalina Varela” (2019) stands out because light is as refined a character as much as the actors, setting and story. Photographed by Leonardo Simões with a masterful use of chiaroscuro that recalls Caravaggio and Rembrandt, the film follows the journey of a Cape Verdean woman as she comes to collect her late husband’s remains in Lisbon, Portugal.  more

According to Bonnie Golden, one of four local women who founded Taos Immigration Allies, "immigration involves basic human rights, everyone but Native Americans are immigrants, and everyone has a right to asylum.

There are some easy assumptions that can be made about South Korean writer-director Bong Joon Ho’s 2020 Academy Awards Best Picture winner, not the least of which is whether it deserves such an accolade given the hints of predictability laid out in opening scenes. But, as one watches this film the realization we are in the presence of a highly skilled, deliberate and truly insightful talent becomes readily apparent. more
