Film: Berlanga cumple cien años, Plácido

June 18

12 pm (MST)

Available for 48 hours

Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel HERE

In Berlanga’s 1961 film Plácido, an impoverished truck driver in rural Spain becomes involved in a Christmas Eve “Invite a poor person to dinner” event sponsored by a cookware manufacturer. The fast-paced, darkly comic farce takes a satirical look at the true meaning of charity, contrasting charity from the head—the cold, calculated kind practiced by a hypocritical upper class—with charity from the heart.

Spain; 1961; Spanish with English subtitles; 85 minutes; not rated.

The Inquisition is one of the most famous and infamous of religious courts in history.The reviled institution even had a presence in New Mexico during the colonial period. State Historian Rob Martinez presents a fascinating look at the history of the Inquisition in Europe, Spain and the Americas, with a focus on Mexico and New Mexico. Cases of heretical behavior reveal much about the social and religious practices and activities of people in the 1600s, 1700s, and 1800s.

NHCC Book Club: Afterlife—Julia Alvarez

June 24

5:30 pm (MDT)

Live via Zoom
To join, contact cassandra.osterloh@state.nm.us

“Antonia Vega, the immigrant writer at the center of Afterlife, has had the rug pulled out from under her. She has just retired from the college where she taught English when her beloved husband, Sam, suddenly dies. And then more jolts: her bighearted but unstable sister disappears, and Antonia returns home one evening to find a pregnant, undocumented teenager on her doorstep. Antonia has always sought direction in the literature she loves—lines from her favorite authors play in her head like a soundtrack—but now she finds that the world demands more of her than words.” – Goodreads.
