Jon, Sue and Callista at Loft Encore Screening, May 2018

Late on July 22, 2018 you may have felt a downshift in the rotation of the earth. That was mother nature trying to compensate for the loss of a prime force, Susana Mary Mincks. Sue was the Director of Fun, an incredible mother, wife and caring companion, beloved grandmother, devoted educator and a bright reassuring matriarch of how love is always the answer. A civil rights and anti-war activist in the 60’s, a pop-culture entrepreneur in the 70’s, a pioneer of Pima County Adult Education in the 80’s, an inspiration in the 90’s and a caregiver who never knew what ‘too much’ meant. She is survived by a family and tribe who can only hope to achieve at least a few of the kind of inspirational relationships which were common-place everyday occurrences for her. It takes a village… or Sue.

Splendid Premiere!

Bev Seckinger answers questions following screening Hippie Family Values at Santa Fe Film Festival, Feb 11, 2018

We had a fabulous time in Santa Fe last weekend: a dusting of snow the morning of the screening, a full house in the cozy cinematheque at the Center for Contemporary Arts, and a spirited Q&A. It was great to have three generations of Ranch women–Kate, Dulcie and Bella–there to answer questions with me, and such an enthusiastic, appreciative audience. Huge thanks to every one of you dear supporters who made it possible!!
