In 1955, All That Heaven Allows (Douglas Sirk) featured characters socially ostracized for a relationship that crossed class and age barriers. Todd Haynes updates this scenario in Far From Heaven (2002), as a white suburbanite realizes that her husband is gay while she confronts social taboos in her growing attraction to an African-American man. Stars Julianne Moore, Dennis Quaid, and Dennis Haysbert.

In conjunction with La Sala’s summer exhibit Under the Influences: New Mexico Artists Their Work and Influences,  film historian Angie Beauchamp will introduce the evening by sharing stills of earlier work that influenced the movie screened.
