Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

8 pm

A documentary inspired by the narrator’s grandfather, this film tells the real-life story of a Polish immigrant trying to get to the United States to escape both war and poverty, but inadvertently finding himself in Caborca, a small town in Sonora, Mexico. It is a moving and uplifting account of an individual’s strength and commitment to maintain his faith in the face of extraordinary obstacles, including the fact that he is the only Jew in a Catholic community and is unable to speak the language. Ultimately, Don Juan Chait becomes a beloved resident of Caborca. Presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series, as well as ¡RESILIENCIA! The Experience of Jewish Communities in Spain and the Americas. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director David Chait and Dr. Scott Levin, director of the Anti-Defamation League Mountain States Region.

The Experience of Jewish Communities in Spain and the Americas, organized by Instituto Cervantes, Casa Sefarad@Nahalat Shalom, Festival Djudeo-Espanyol, and the NHCC, is a week of films, music, food, exhibits, and lectures highlighting the extraordinary journey of the Jewish people to Spanish-speaking countries.

Film: A palabra xusta/La palabra justa

August 22, 2019

7 pm

In August, the Center continues its partnership with Instituto Cervantes to present films in the organization’s current Espacio femenino series. Instituto Cervantes has offered this series since 2010, presenting contemporary work by women filmmakers and focusing on women’s concerns and issues.

A palabra xusta is a game invented by a teacher for her students, in which each child writes, in one word, what s/he has learned in that day’s class. The answers are put on the board, and everyone chooses the best—the right word. In Miguel Piñeiro’s documentary, 92-year-old Antía “Tita” Cal Vázquez, who founded the Rosalía de Castro School in Vigo in 1961, engages in a conversation with her cherished photographs and her memories. In a house where time seems to have stopped, on a journey that crosses the boundaries of time and space, she searches for the right words to tell us about her childhood, her vocation, the great love of her life—everything that shaped her as a woman and an educator. Presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.

2016; Miguel Piñeiro; Galician and Spanish with English subtitles; 108 minutes; not rated.

Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show

Film: La Nana/The Maid

August 29, 2019

6 pm
Please note that a pre-screening conversation about the film, led by Dr. Elizabeth Hutchison, will begin at this time. The film will be shown at 7 pm

Raquel has worked as a live-in, uniformed maid for a well-to-do family in Santiago, Chile for over 20 years. Now 41, she is part of the family in some ways, as emotional attachments—both positive and negative—attest, but in others remains apart, even expendable. When her employers decide that she needs help and hire an additional maid, Raquel feels that she must fight for her place in the household. Her “guerrilla war” against a series of newcomers reaches increasingly audacious heights, until someone quite different turns up and Raquel’s world begins, very gently, to expand.  La Nana, described as a “microcosm of Latin social hierarchy,” also focuses on one woman’s journey to free herself from a mental servitude of her own making.

2009; Sebastián Silva; Spanish with English subtitles; 135 minutes; not rated.

Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show

This film, rescheduled from March 2019, is presented in partnership with Women’s International Study Center (WISC) as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series. Dr. Elizabeth Hutchison, WISC Fellow-in-Residence, will introduce the film and lead a discussion with representatives of other community organizations, beginning at 6 pm, prior to the screening. Please join us for refreshments and further conversation in the lobby afterwards!

¡Cine Magnífico!: 7th Annual Latino Film Festival: Black is Beltza

September 4, 2019

Opening Film / NM Premiere

6 pm Opening Reception, 8 pm Film Screening and Q & A with Fermin Muguruza, Director

¡Cine Magnífico! celebrates Spanish and Latin American culture through presentation of some of the best of modern cinema in a weekend-long program, featuring work by first-time filmmakers and established masters alike. The subject matter runs the gamut from comedies, action, romances and documentary films, to dramatic masterpieces. Some of the riskiest and most innovative films of recent years will be included.

October 1965. Pamplona’s troupe of giant figures, a typical sight at the San Fermín festivities, is invited to parade along Fifth Avenue in New York. But not all of them will be allowed to appear: due to racial discrimination, the American authorities will ban the participation of the two black giants. Based on this true event, Black Is Beltza tells the story of Manex, the young man responsible for carrying one of the giants. Embarked on a long, unexpected journey, Manex will witness key events in history: the race riots arising from the assassination of Malcolm X, the eccentricities of the characters in The Factory, the alliance between the Cuban secret service and the Black Panthers, and the proto-hippy psychedelia of the first music festivals.
