Film: My American Girls

7 pm

August screenings in the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series conclude Becoming American: A Documentary Film and Discussion Series on our Immigration Experience. This six-week series is a project of City Lore, a cultural center for the arts and humanities based in New York City. It is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of NEH’s Community Conversations initiative, and features documentary film screenings and scholar-led discussions designed to encourage an informed discussion of immigration issues against the backdrop of our immigration history.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center is one of 24 organizations selected nationwide to participate in the Becoming American project. The scholar/moderator for the screenings and discussions at the Center is Dr. Gabriel Sanchez, Professor of Political Science at the University of New Mexico. The theme for Unit Five, presented on August 9, is “Family and Community.”

Filmed over the course of a year, this documentary follows the family of Sandra and Bautista Ortiz, hardworking immigrants living frugally in a multi-family house in Brooklyn, who dream of retiring to their native Dominican Republic. Their American-born and acculturated daughters have other ideas altogether. The conflict between the first generation’s values — attachment to their homeland, discipline and strong work ethic, clarity of goals and emphasis on family – and the independent outlook of their three girls form the moving and often humorous dramatic spine of the film.
2001; Aaron Matthews; English; 62 minutes; not rated.
Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show

Nosotros box

Domingos en Arte: Nosotros

August 12

7:30 pm

Nosotros is one of the most recognizable Latin bands in the Southwest United States. They have twice been featured on NPR’s Alt Latino, twice been named winners in the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Competition, been awarded 11 NM Music Awards and have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music. This 9-piece Latin music powerhouse seamlessly combines Latin rhythms with elements of Rock, Salsa, Jazz and Cumbia, creating an original sound that is unmistakably Nosotros. But M.E. Schenck of Hyperactive Music Magazine may have interpreted their sound best by saying “Nosotros’ music is not to be explained, it is to be felt in the pit of our souls.”

Domingos en Arte, a summer music and dance series presented by Melaza Music, AMP Concerts, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center is a family-friendly summer event on Sundays in NHCC’s charming Fountain Courtyard that features live music, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine.

Sundays in the Museum Aith Artist Aziza Murray

August 12

2:00 pm

Join us for a tour of the exhibition, Because It’s Time, led by Aziza Murray. About her artwork, Study No.1 and Study No. 2 from the series: Whose Type? Aziza writes, “I am often mistaken for someone else, someone who “looks like” me, or asked if my sister/brother/cousin is so-and-so. My new series, Whose Type?, ponders these ideas and asks the viewer to think about and question their own biases (we all have them) and to reconsider outdated beliefs.”

Aziza will talk about her work as well as facilitate a conversation about the exhibition as a whole.

This event is free with the purchase of museum admission.
