Film: Ciclo Ángela Molina, Las cosas del querer

February 26

12 pm (available for 48 hours)

Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel HERE

Jaime Chávarrri’s Las cosas del querer follows the trajectory of a song-and-dance duo and their piano player in the 1940s, with a look into their backstage lives and an evocation of the popular music of their times. As the group’s rise to fame and fortune parallels Franco’s consolidation of power in collusion with the Spanish aristocracy, their return to Madrid marks the most difficult  moments of their careers. Lavishly produced and vibrantly entertaining as a musical, Las cosas del querer also addresses issues of fascism, feminism, and homophobia in postwar Spain.

Perspectivas Modernas: Trans-American Detritus: A Study in Trans-Femicide  

March 2

6 pm (MST)

Live via Zoom. Register HERE

This presentation focuses on the photography series, En la Pista (2016) by Mexican artist Teresa Margolles. I focus on Margolles’ use of portraiture to capture a snapshot of the lives of transwomen in Juarez, Mexico, and the transitions of the border. Margolles’ work visually disrupts narratives of femicide and slows the frantic pace of life on the border within the boundaries of the frame of the photographs.

NHCC Book Club: Mexican Gothic—Silvia Moreno-Garcia

March 25

5:30 pm (MST)

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

“Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s Mexican Gothic is a thoroughly enjoyable, thought-provoking novel. The main character, Noémi, receives a strange letter from her cousin, Catalina, who begs for help. She claims her new husband Virgil Doyle is poisoning her, that ‘fleshless things’ and ghosts trouble her, that ‘they will not let me go.’ Noémi — self-assured, chic and stubborn — leaves the glamor of 1950s Mexico City for the countryside, still depressed after a mining bust and fecund with secrets, to determine whether Catalina needs rescue.” – Jessica P.  Wick, NPR.
