¡Salud y Sabor! Mexico & Chile and Corn/Chile y Maiz

5:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Salud y Sabor, a partnership between the Agri-cultura Network, Street Food Institute, and the NHCC, is a free evening of food, art, and entertainment aimed at providing families with an opportunity to connect around nutrition, cooking, healthy lifestyles, and culture.

Once a month, community members gather for cooking demonstrations using fresh, locally grown ingredients, as well as fun art activities for kids and adults, health screenings, and live entertainment. An emphasis is placed on exploring traditional Hispanic dishes, providing basic information/free screenings from local Western and alternative health practitioners, and creating a vibrant atmosphere with art activities and live music. In most months, free samples of local produce are available.

This month we celebrate Mexico and make food using Chile and Corn/Chile y Maiz.

For more information on Salud y Sabor, contact David Torres at 505/246-2261 or email him DavidM.Torres@state.nm.us

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.

2 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 Fourteenth Celebration of World Music and Culture. Films in the series are from countries whose artists are represented in this year’s festival.

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.
