SANTA FE FILM FESTIVAL AND MONROE GALLERY ON RADIO STATION KBAC



This week radio station KBAC ("Radio Free Santa Fe")  is broadcasting information and interviews relating to the Santa Fe Film Festival.

Tune in Tuesday at 1 PM to listen as Sid and Michelle Monroe discuss the Monroe Gallery's collection of film-related photography, including stills and publicity photography from Hollywood's classic movies; and Brian Hamill's photographs of Raging Bull, Annie Hall, and Manhattan, and John Lennon.

Listen live here.

The much-talked about  film "LENNONYC" will be shown on Saturday, October 23 at the festival.

LENNONYC


"In 1971, John Lennon arrived in New York City and felt reborn: at last living in the country that had dominated his artistic imagination, Lennon and his new bride Yoko Ono found in the city the perfect blend of music, politics, culture, and lifestyle. But those heady first years eventually gave way to a dark period in which both Lennon’s musical career and his personal life almost ran aground—until once again New York City came to his rescue. Using remarkable, rarely seen footage and interviews with many who were close to John, filmmaker Michael Epstein has created a moving, revealing portrait of the music legend’s New York years, detailing not only his triumphs but also some hard times over which he so beautifully recovered in the final years of his tragically curtailed life."

Monroe Gallery will welcome Brian Hamill with a special reception and exhibition on Friday, October 22, 5 - 7 PM. On exhibit will be a selection of Hamill's photographs from the sets of movies, including Raging Bull, Annie Hall, and Manhattan. Additionally, an exclusive series of intimate photographs of John Lennon will be on exhibit, coinciding with the anniversary of what would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday and the screening of LENNONNYC at the Santa Fe Film Festival October 23. (Brian Hamill will introduce the film.)
