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: Embrace of the Serpent/El abrazo de la serpiente

7 pm

Filmed almost entirely in black and white in the Amazon jungle, Embrace of the Serpent focuses on the relationship between an Amazonian shaman and two Western scientists over the course of 40 years, and was inspired by the travel journals, written decades apart, of two explorers who traveled through the Colombian Amazon during the last century in search of a sacred and difficult-to-find psychedelic plant. In respecting spirituality of place and rules of nature handed down through centuries, it attains, in addition to its extraordinary visual beauty, what has been described as “mystical higher ground.” The third film by director Ciro Guerra, Embrace of the Serpent is the first Colombian film ever to be nominated for an Academy Award, for Best Foreign Language Film. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.

2015; Ciro Guerra; Spanish, Huitoto, Latin, Okaina, Portuguese, Tikuna, Wanano, German, English, with English subtitles; 125 minutes; not rated.

Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show
