¡Globalquerque! International Cinema Series: Mustang (France/Turkey)

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 five orphaned teenage sisters are seen playing innocently on the beach with their male classmates, and reported to their guardians by a prying neighbor, the conservative family essentially imprisons the girls, removing all “instruments of corruption” like cell phones and computers, and subjecting them to endless lessons in housework in preparation for arranged marriages. As the oldest sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together to avoid the same fate.
2015; Deniz Gamze Ergüven; Turkish with English subtitles; 97 minutes; rated PG-15.
Free ticketed event with tickets available one hour prior to the screening

La Canoa: Mulattos of Cochiti: Caste in Spanish New Mexico

September 15

2 pm

Please join Deputy State Historian Rob Martinez, as he examines the role of racial mixing, identity, and the categorizing of humans living in Spanish Colonial New Mexico. The approach will be through the lens of the casta, or caste system. Historical research, genealogy, and DNA all converge to provide a clearer understanding of Hispano roots in New Mexico, as well as in Latino-Meso America and Hispanic Europe.

Deputy State Historian Rob Martinez is a native New Mexican born and raised in Albuquerque. A graduate of the University of New Mexico with a B.B.A. in International Business Management, Rob went on to pursue his interest in New Mexican culture and history at UNM, earning an M.A. in Latin American history, with an emphasis on church, cultural, and social practices of the Spanish Colonial period in New Mexico. Mr. Martinez worked for fourteen years as a research historian for the Sephardic Legacy Project, scouring civil and church archives in New Mexico, Mexico, Spain, France, Italy, Cuba, and Puerto Rico, analyzing documents for a research and publishing project about the Crypto-Jewish phenomenon in New Mexico and the Caribbean. Rob has presented papers and lectures on his research at the University of New Mexico as well as history conferences throughout the southwestern United States. He has also spoken to historical groups in New Mexico such as the Hispanic Genealogical Research Center of New Mexico, the Albuquerque Historical Society, and the Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies about research methodology, unique findings, New Mexico Hispanic culture, and general History of New Mexico. Mr. Martinez is also a folk musician, performing and promoting New Mexican Hispanic musical traditions for the past twenty years with his brother Lorenzo and their father Roberto Martinez in the group Los Reyes de Albuquerque. With his musical family, he has performed in all parts of New Mexico, and on multiple occasions has presented music and New Mexican culture at the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival in Washington, D.C., the NEA’s National Heritage Fellowship Awards, and also at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Alejandro Mendiaz, “Speaking Truth to Power: UndocuTalks”

11 am

This talk is part of the educational programming related to People Powered: New Mexicans and Social Movements.

UndocuTalks is a podcast that was developed as a virtual space where undocumented youth can independently share news, knowledge, and culture with other undocumented youth and allies.  Alejandro Mendiaz is a co-founder of UndocuTalks and a host of the UndocuNews segment that aims to share important information with our immigrant communities in a healthy dose of digestible pieces of information that combat the constant stressful bombardment of immigration-related, sensationalized news. Alejandro and the UndocuTalks collective sees podcasting as revolutionary medium that can inform our social movements in New Mexico, the U.S., and internationally.
