Film: Cortos en Femenino Film Series: Dúctiles

December 14December 16

1 pm

Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel Here

Free

Instituto Cervantes Albuquerque presents, Cortos en Femenino film series, during the month of December, is part of the short film program with El día más corto (The shorter day). The inspiration of this program is the celebration of films directed by women. Designed by Trama, the coordinator of women’s festivals in Spain, this program presents four very different examples of today’s current short film productions, made up of two fictions, a documentary and a montage film.

Marisa Benito‘s Dúctiles is the story of the image of women that has been used and shaped to the taste of societies and historical events of each era, which has generated visual codes and stereotypes. These models of the ideal woman have been filtered in one way or another by sectors of male power, which have used them to attribute to women norms of ethical and moral conduct, and specific functions and spaces.

Mireia Noguera‘s Centrifugado is the story of a young man who helps an old lady to carry the laundry up to her house. Once inside, the lady seems reluctant to let him go. The environment in which everyday life is structured has always its lights and shadows. And many times, appearances can be deceiving. In this story, starring the ill-fated Rikar Gil and Mireia Noguera’s first film, we witness a dazzling exercise in ellipsis and humanity.

Elena Molina‘s Quand j’étais petit is a documentary of childhood in many African countries and the reality experienced by many other children on the planet. Violence and helplessness, often unavoidable despite families, can lead to horrible conditions. The story of Malone, the protagonist of this story, is a fable that illuminates the future, and it does so through the magic of the story, the ancient capacity of stories to teach us to live and grow.

Tertulia Histórica Albuquerque: Illuminating New Mexico: A History of Luminarias and Farolitos

December 19

2 pm (MST)
Live via Zoom

Register in advance for this meeting HERE.

State Historian Rob Martínez examines the fascinating origins of these uniquely New Mexican cultural expressions. Before there was a Christmas tree, mistletoe, egg nog or Santa Claus, there were luminarias and farolitos lighting the dark paths for ancient New Mexicans, commemorating that long ago tradition of High Mass at midnight. Like most New Mexican traditions, these lights, like Las Posadas, reach back deep into a rich Catholic tradition that is a blend of Spanish, Puebloan, Mexican, and American influences that are still vibrant today. Add the contributions of Asians from places like China and you have a very unique New Mexico religious expression that illuminates New Mexico like no other tradition. State Historian Rob Martínez takes us on a journey to discover where these sacred lights came from.

Free, Registration Required

Tertulia Histórica Albuquerque: My Grandfather and Pancho Villa

February 20, 2021

2 pm (MST)

Live Via Zoom

Register in advance HERE

For more than a century scholars have debated why Pancho Villa attacked the border town of Columbus, New Mexico on March 9, 1916—a deadly incursion and the only time in the 20th century that a major foreign army invaded the continental United States. For Stacey Ravel Abarbanel, the battle is the context for a family tale so spectacular that she always wondered if it was true: when Villa raided the village he was looking to kill her grandfather, Sam Ravel.
