Taymors no stranger to Aspen Film, having participated in a panel discussion as part of a short-film festival several years back. Based on that visit, Thielen is confident attendees will be fascinated by the career retrospective and question-and-answer session Taymor will host. Shes very articulate, very passionate and very single-minded, in the best sense of the word and shes got such an unusual vision, she says. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear what makes her tick.
The Taymor tribute takes place at 8:15 p.m. at Aspens Paepcke Auditorium, 1000 North Third Street; tickets are $40. Call 1-866-449-0464 or visit www.aspenshowtickets.com for more information. In addition, a supper with Taymor follows her appearance. Those interested in attending can get details at 1-970-925-6882 or www.aspenfilm.org.
