¡Globalquerque! International Cinema Series: Yo, abolicionista (Argentina)
September 19, 2019
In September, the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series showcases the ¡Globalquerque! International Cinema Series, presented in partnership with ¡Globalquerque!, New Mexico’s Fifteenth Celebration of World Music and Culture, returning to the NHCC on September 20 & 21. Most films in the series are from countries whose artists are represented in this year’s festival.
Yo, abolicionista focuses on the ten years the director spent working with two plays dealing with prostitution and human trafficking. Traveling around Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Paraguay to present these plays, getting to know the women caught up in these networks, and documenting her reflections from the tours and conversations reinforced her activism within Argentina’s feminist abolitionist groups. In the film, fiction and reality blend, and the protagonists form a bond so strong that they reinforce and amplify each other’s voices. 2019; directed by Mariel Rosciano; Spanish with English subtitles; 75 minutes; not rated.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Mariel Rosciano.
Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show
