Ol’ Max Evans: The First Thousand Years
Renowned best-selling author Max Evans has been a miner, prospector, movie producer, soldier, artist, and hard-drinking, calf-roping cowboy. He is a vanishing breed of hero of the American West. He wrote the book The Rounders, which was turned into a film of the same name, starring Glenn Ford and Henry Fonda. Evans used his passion for cinematic storytelling to help establish the New Mexico Film Commission. Narrated by Peter Coyote and Sam Elliott, the film takes you on a fast-paced ride through his life, legends and the changing West. (The Rounders will screen free under the stars in the Yavapavilion following the documentary.)

At the ripe age of 90, Yvonne Dowlen was ice skating at least five days a week and competing in figure skating competitions across the country. After experiencing severe physical obstacles in her 80’s Yvonne discovered the secret to recovery and longevity: staying active and simply in doing what you love.
