¡Globalquerque! International Cinema Series: Treeless Mountain/Namueopneun San (U.S./South Korea)

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 Fourteenth Celebration of World Music and Culture, returning to the NHCC on September 21 & 22. Films in the series are from countries whose artists are represented in this year’s festival.

When their mother leaves to find their estranged father, six-year-old Jin and her younger sister Bin are left to live with their Big Aunt for the summer. With only a small piggy bank and their mother’s promise to return when it is full, the two young girls count the days and the coins, eagerly anticipating her homecoming. But when the bank is full, and their mother is still not back, Big Aunt decides that she can no longer tend to the children, and they are taken to live on their grandparents’ farm, where Jin comes to learn the importance of family bonds.

Atacama—A World Premiere

+ Google Map

September 28-30 & October 5-7, 2018

Augusto Federico Amador’s Atacama is a play about a man and a woman who meet in the northern Chilean desert while searching for bone fragments of loved ones disappeared by the Pinochet regime, and find a deep and unsettling connection that shakes their souls. Juliet Salazar directs Bernadette Peña and James R. Chávez in this taut psychological drama. Although the play was a finalist at the Austin Latinx New Play Festival, and has had readings around the country, the current Teatro Paraguas production is the world premiere. Atacama is also one of nine finalists in the BBC International Radio Play Competition.
