Monthly Speakers Program for the Hispanic Genealogical Research Center of NM (Rental)

February 3
Wells Fargo Auditorium
1701 4th Street SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States
+ Google Map

10:30 am

The February 3, 2018, speaker is Dr. Richard Melzer and the title of his presentation is “Captain Maximiliano Luna a New Mexico Rough Rider.” Dr. Melzer’s presentation is from his recently published book by the same name. The book will be available for purchase at the meeting.

Theodore Roosevelt called his men “children of the dragon’s blood,” those Rough Riders who bravely followed him up Cuba’s Kettle and San Juan hills in the face of blistering Spanish rifle and artillery fire.  Surely no Rough Rider deserved that title more than Captain Maximiliano Luna of New Mexico.  Yet his fascinating life has remained in the shadows of history until now.  Dr. Melzer thankfully gives us, Luna’s vibrant story for the first time in this thoroughly researched and important biography.  This is both a hero’s tale and tragic reminder of the supreme cost of war.

Richard Melzer is a Regents professor of history at the University of New Mexico’s Valencia campus.  A former president of the Historical Society of New Mexico, he is the author of two dozen books and over a hundred articles on New Mexico history.

Cariños poster (800)

Film: Cariños

7 pm

Cariños, a serialized cinematic experience from visionary auteur Christopher Michael Roybal, examines who, how, and why people love. The film follows a group of New Mexicans throughout 2017 as they collide in unconventional and unexpected ways, all while trying both to uncover and to keep hidden secrets that could change their lives forever. Cariños is unique because there are two distinct versions of this experimental fictional drama. The first version played out over the course of 2017 and broke the film into 53 individual scenes, or episodes, that premiered weekly online until its conclusion on the last day of the year. The second version, premiering tonight, compiles all of the episodes into a single, unified feature film that asks viewers if there is actually any one right way to love. Cariños contains adult language and content, and may not be suitable for all audiences. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.

Christopher Michael Roybal will be present at the screening to discuss the film with the audience.

2017; Christopher Michael Roybal; English; 120 minutes, not rated (suggested R rating).
Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show
