“It takes more than going down to your local video store and renting “Easy Rider” to be a rebel.”

Dennis Hopper



Rebel Film Festival will celebrate Hopper’s first two films as a director and their connection to the land of enchantment.

EASY RIDER, in part, was filmed in Taos, New Mexico. Locations included Taos Pueblo, Taos Old County Jail, and Stagecoach Hot Springs. THE LAST MOVIE was edited at Dennis’ home in Taos, he referred to as, “The Mud Palace”, known today as “The Tony Luhan Mable Dodge House.”

Friday May 17 – 7pm

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Dennis Hopper’s Counter-Culture-Classic

EASY RIDER

A man went looking for America. And couldn’t find it anywhere…

“Independent films in this country are in the same position. Miramax and Fine Line are not independent – they’re with Disney! Come on. Or they’re with Warner Brothers. They’re all with somebody.”

“You know, this is such a rich time that we’ve just been involved in, and there’s really a job now for historians. Film is still very young. This is the first hundred years of filmmaking. So I think it’s important that we have some sense of history and continuity. Especially in film.”

—Dennis Hopper

THE LAST MOVIE

“I think my movie, personally, is one of the most important films that have ever been made in America… I don’t know if anyone is going to see it, but I feel the film is going to take care of itself in time and be around as long as there are films.”

—Dennis Hopper
