A woman with in­flu­ence

Pasatiempo - - CONTENTS -

“I never, ever wanted to be any­thing other than an ac­tress,” ad­mits Gena Row­lands. And she’s been do­ing it since she left col­lege in 1950. High­lights of her iconic ca­reer, which in­cludes more than 60 movies, are her col­lab­o­ra­tions with hus­band John Cas­savetes. On Satur­day, Oct. 17, at the Len­sic, the Santa Fe In­de­pen­dent Film Fes­ti­val hon­ors the ac­tress with a Life­time Achieve­ment Award, fol­lowed by a screen­ing of 1974’s A Woman Un­der the In­flu­ence, writ­ten and di­rected by Cas­savetes. Row­lands ac­knowl­edges that her Os­carnom­i­nated per­for­mance as Ma­bel was one of her most re­ward­ing — and her most dif­fi­cult. The sev­enth an­nual film fes­ti­val runs from Wed­nes­day, Oct. 14, to Sun­day, Oct. 18, with an ar­ray of fea­tures, doc­u­men­taries, shorts, panel dis­cus­sions, and par­ties at var­i­ous venues around town. On the cover is a por­trait of Row­lands.
