4th Annual Globalquerque International Cinema Series: The Distinguished Citizen/El ciudadano ilustre (Argentina/Spain)
September 14, 2017
Nobel Prize-winning, Barcelona-based novelist Daniel Mantovani enjoys the fruits of his success, but feels it is spoiling the integrity of his work. Desperate for self-renovation, he accepts an invitation to receive an award in his hometown of Salas, Argentina, returning, for the first time in 40 years, to be feted—and confronted—by the people who have informed his life’s work. 2016; directed by Gastón Duprat & Mariano Cohn; Spanish with English subtitles; 118 minutes; not rated.
From late August through September, the Bank of America Thursday Film Series showcases the International Cinema Series, presented in partnership with Avokado Artists and ¡Globalquerque!, New Mexico’s Thirteenth Celebration of World Music and Culture, returning to the NHCC on September 22 & 23. The screening of The Distinguished Citizen is also presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes, as part of the fifth annual ¡Cine Magnífico! Latino Film Festival as well as the International Cinema Series.
