Film: Bless Me, Ultima

January 18

7 pm

The screen adaptation of Rudolfo Anaya’s iconic work, set in the 1940s in rural New Mexico, about a young boy and the mysterious healer who opens his eyes to the wonders of the spiritual realm. As the entire world is plunged into war and Antonio Marez grapples with the harsh realities all around him, his life is forever changed by the sudden arrival of Ultima, a curandera who inspires him to see the world from a new perspective. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.
2011; Carl Franklin; English; 102 minutes; rated PG-13.

Bless Me, Ultima is shown in preparation for the world premiere of a new opera, also based on Rudolfo Anaya’s novel and produced as a partnership between Opera Southwest and the National Hispanic Cultural Center. The operatic version of Bless Me, Ultima will come to the NHCC stage in late February.
Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show
