July 27

Alma, the protagonist of Santiago León Cuéllar’s 2018 film of the same name, has just entered a new high school, and her classmate Victor invites her to a party. The ongoing changes in her body, and her hidden desires, lead her to face her inner fears and begin the process of self-acceptance—loving herself as she is.

2018; Spanish with English subtitles; 17 minutes; not rated.

Free community event

During the month of July, in a collaboration with film distributor Marvin & Wayne, the Vimeo channel of Instituto Cervantes Albuquerque hosts Te estoy amando locamente, LGTBI+ Short Film Series. The series comprises eight different stories by eight filmmakers, showcasing a remarkable variety of cinematic language while dealing specifically, but not only, with issues of gender identity, same sex love, and transsexuality. These personal reflections, testimonies, and portraits present viewers with realities that are generally underrepresented in cinema. Taking its name from a song popularized by Las Grecas in the 1970s, Te estoy amando locamente is presented in collaboration with the National Hispanic Cultural Center as part of the Bank of America Free Film Series.
