Art Education Curriculum Project–Information Gathering

June 21August 17

The National Hispanic Cultural Center in partnership with AmeriCorps VISTA is developing an Art Education Curriculum and Online Resource for Albuquerque educators and students.

We are seeking to create partnerships with schools, educators, parents, and artists to develop a curriculum that will be tailored to fit the needs of as many K-12 students as possible. Through outreach and discussion, we intend to better understand community needs and how digitization of this curriculum would be most useful.

Film: Leona

7 pm

A universal tale of star-crossed lovers is given a uniquely Mexican twist in writer-director Isaac Cherem’s debut film. Ariela, an independently-minded young artist living with her Syrian-Jewish family in a cloistered Jewish neighborhood in Mexico City, finds herself torn between her family and a forbidden romance with a non-Jewish writer, who shows her a world of possibilities beyond her sheltered life. As their feelings deepen, Ariela must negotiate the labyrinth of familial pressure, religious values and traditions, and her own burgeoning sentiment, finding that there are no easy choices to be made. Bridging the divide between generations and cultures, the film blends romantic comedy with an incisive feminist journey of discovery and self-determination.

2018; Isaac Cherem; Spanish with English subtitles; 95 minutes; not rated (mature content advisory).

The Jewish Community Center’s 6th Annual ABQ Jewish Film Fest features six recently released film premieres, weaving a colorful tapestry of uniquely Jewish stories that come from around the world. The NHCC is partnering with the JCC on the screenings of Leona (July 20) and The Mamboniks (July 28).

Tickets are being sold by the Jewish Community Center; $10 in advance, $12 at the door, $55 for a full festival pass (6th Annual ABQ Jewish Film Fest)

Domingos en Arte: Edmar Castañeda

July 21

6 pm

Domingos en Arte, the summer music and dance series presented by MelazaMusic and the National Hispanic Cultural Center, enters its fourth season, with concerts scheduled through August. We have invited a wide range of Latin artists for family-friendly summer Sundays that feature live music, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine in the NHCC’s enchanting Fountain Courtyard.

On July 21, a partnership with Outpost Productions and the New Mexico Jazz Festival brings Colombian-born harp virtuoso Edmar Castañeda to the courtyard stage. Castañeda has forged a unique musical path, bringing a wholly original voice to jazz and other genres, and taking the world by storm with his virtuosity and command of his instrument. A consummate collaborator, he has formed partnerships with Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Wynton Marsalis, and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, among others, and has performed at venues including the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, and the 10th Annual World Harp Congress. “If you aren’t watching Castañeda in action, you might think you’re listening to an ensemble rather than a solo player…. Between both hands, you hear the overlapping polyrhythms of joropo, a complex, triple-meter dance from South America.” (Hartford Courant)

$20 w/ $5 discount for NHCC members and Outpost members; free for children 12 and younger

Film: ¡Las Sandinistas!

7 pm

¡Las Sandinistas! documents a watershed moment in history, when a group of Nicaraguan women shattered barriers to lead rebel troops in battle and reshape their country with landmark social reforms during the 1979 Sandinista Revolution and the ensuing U.S.-backed Contra War, only to face renewed marginalization by their male peers once the wars ended. The film centers on the personal stories of Dora María Téllez, the young medical student who became a key Sandinista general, and four of her revolutionary allies. Now, amid staggering levels of gender violence in Nicaragua, these same women brave the streets once again to lead popular movements for equality and democracy. Presented in partnership with New Mexico PBS as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Jenny Murray.

2018; Jenny Murray; English and Spanish with English subtitles; 60 minutes; not rated.

Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show
