International Cinema Series, presented in partnership with ¡Globalquerque!, New Mexico’s Fourteenth Celebration of World Music and Culture. Films in the series are from countries whose artists are represented in this year’s festival.

Alma: Arte, Legado y Medio Ambiente/Spirit: Art, Legacy and Environment
This U.S. premiere is a musical-visual journey to the remote area of La Ribeira Sacra in Galicia, Spain, where four musicians participated in an arts residency that allowed them to tune into the ancient forests and steep river canyons before performing before an audience in a 12th century Benedictine monastery. ALMA is a mobile residency program that facilitates experiences for artists to co-create in direct connection with nature. 2017; directed by Victor Hugo Espejo; Spanish with English subtitles; 14 minutes; not rated.

Hombre de Barro: Wapapura en el Amazonas/Man of Clay: Wapapura in the Amazon This documentary follows the Wapapura crew on a journey into the Colombian Amazon rainforest to record the debut album of Bogota-based trio Hombre de Barro. These three musicians, who have all played prominent roles in other Colombian bands, are leaders in the movement to research, promote, and re-engage ancient musical styles from the Americas. The film, recorded by a mobile solar-powered studio, was made at the invitation of the non-profit Fundación Raíces Vivas, which empowers indigenous youth through artistic expression and training in the use of multimedia technology. 2013; directed by Rafael Kotcherha Campora; Spanish with English subtitles; 23 minutes; not rated.

Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

In September, the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series showcases the ¡Globalquerque! International Cinema Series, presented in partnership with ¡Globalquerque!, New Mexico’s Fourteenth Celebration of World Music and Culture.

Latcho Drom, meaning “Safe Journey,” is a visual depiction and historical record of Romany life, told through musicians and dancers of India, Egypt, Turkey, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, France, and Spain. The journey moves from India to Spain, dramatizing the nomadic nature of Romany culture and the variety of conditions in which the Romany people live, and takes place over a year’s time, from summer through fall and winter to spring. Via song and dance, young and old celebrate essential cultural values that have developed over countless generations and in diverse countries. The film illustrates similarities in travel habits, musical instruments and rhythms, and song themes, including celebration of travel and perceived rejection by sedentary locals. 1993; directed by Tony Gatlif; partial English translation of some songs (no dialogue or narration); 103 minutes; not rated.

Film: Humanity on the Move: Los Comandos & Towards the North

7 pm

Humanity on the Move, from Show of Force Productions, tells the stories of those displaced by war, violence, and natural disasters who are seeking refuge and a new place to call home. The series, which includes two short documentaries about refugees from Central America, was aired on World Channel on September 16, to coincide with the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month.

In Los Comandos, a teenage emergency responder faces one of the most difficult choices of her life. El Salvador, as the result of extreme gang and police violence, has the highest murder rate in the world. Sixteen-year-old Mimi, growing up in this war zone, finds refuge in a group of volunteer paramedics called the Comandos de Salvamento—one of the few institutions that is willing to take a stand against the reign of terror, and a place of refuge and community for the young people who are disproportionately targeted. But after one of her fellow Comandos is gunned down, Mimi must decide whether to stay and continue to risk her life to help others, or to flee north in hopes of a brighter future.
2018; Joshua Bennett & Juliana Schatz-Preston; Spanish with English subtitles; 30 minutes; rated PG.

In Towards the North, we meet Nelly and her daughter Joseline, from Honduras, at a tiny refugee shelter in Tapachula, Mexico. Like millions of others, they are fleeing extreme gang violence in Central America. As we enter their world, we witness the daily battles of asylum seekers on the run, making the best of each day, meeting new friends, and living in a constant state of fear. With their sights set on the U.S., mother and daughter cover the length of Mexico—only to arrive in Tijuana, where the U.S. border suddenly becomes a dark reality.
2018; Jessica Chermayeff & Joshua Bennett; Spanish with English subtitles; 20 minutes; rated PG.

The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Eduardo Garcia, a staff attorney at the New Mexico Immigrant Law Center. A native of the El Paso, Texas-Juárez, México borderland, he is an Equal Justice Attorney Fellow for 2018-2020 and director and faculty member of the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project at the UNM School of Law. Presented in partnership with New Mexico PBS.
