This month, the NHCC is offering another screening of the film Bless Me, Ultima in conjunction with La Ultima Exhibición, which will be closing on December 16, 2018. Curated by Augustine Romero, the exhibition in the NHCC Art Museum Community Gallery features visual interpretations of Rudolfo Anaya’s beloved novel. If you haven’t yet seen this popular exhibition, now is the time to go!
The screen adaptation of Anaya’s iconic work, set in the 1940s in rural New Mexico, is the story of a young boy and the mysterious healer who opens his eyes to the wonders of the spiritual realm. As the entire world is plunged into war and Antonio Marez grapples with the harsh realities all around him, his life is forever changed by the sudden arrival of Ultima, a curandera who inspires him to see the world from a new perspective.
