Call for Entries! Día de los Muertos Community Ofrenda Exhibit 2019

September 13October 9

Call for Entries! Día de los Muertos Community Ofrenda Exhibit 2019

Each year the National Hispanic Cultural Center works with schools and community organizations to host an exhibit of ofrendas (altars) in celebration of Día de los Muertos

Ofrendas will be placed in the Domenici Education Building and the Roy E. Disney Performing Arts Center. Due to limited availability, the NHCC cannot accommodate all requests for tables. Please plan to provide your own tables, boxes or structure for your altar, and additional desired supplies. The NHCC reserves the right to review all submissions to ensure their alignment with the NHCC mission. If you are unable to create an ofrenda, the NHCC has a community ofrenda that you are welcome to contribute items in remembrance of your loved ones.  Keep in mind we are not responsible for any items that are lost or stolen. Please do not bring irreplaceable photographs or items.  We encourage photo copies.

¡Globalquerque! International Cinema Series: Yo, abolicionista (Argentina)

7 pm

In September, the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series showcases the ¡Globalquerque! International Cinema Series, presented in partnership with ¡Globalquerque!, New Mexico’s Fifteenth Celebration of World Music and Culture, returning to the NHCC on September 20 & 21. Most films in the series are from countries whose artists are represented in this year’s festival.

Yo, abolicionista focuses on the ten years the director spent working with two plays dealing with prostitution and human trafficking. Traveling around Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Paraguay to present these plays, getting to know the women caught up in these networks, and documenting her reflections from the tours and conversations reinforced her activism within Argentina’s feminist abolitionist groups. In the film, fiction and reality blend, and the protagonists form a bond so strong that they reinforce and amplify each other’s voices. 2019; directed by Mariel Rosciano; Spanish with English subtitles; 75 minutes; not rated.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Mariel Rosciano.
