Isabella Rossellini to receive Art of Film Award from Dallas Film Society

Isabella Rossellini got her start in film in big ways — first on sets as the child of actress Ingrid Bergman and director Roberto Rossellini, then starring in Blue Velvet in her first year as an actress. She’ll talk about those topics and more as this year’s recipient of the Art of Film Award dinner and party.

Kitchen Dog continues 25th anniversary season with gay playwright Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s ‘The Totalitarians’

Gay playwright Peter Sinn Nachtrieb is a favorite of Kitchen Dog Theater, probably because his darkly comic, contemporary take on society matches with the troupe’s own mission to push the edges of drama. In The Totalitarians, getting its regional premiere this week, Nachtrieb takes on relationships, modern electoral politics and the brink of revolution. Company members Tina Parker, Max Hartmann and Drew Wall lead the cast.
