Film: Violeta Went to Heaven (Chile)

August 12
Bank of America Theatre 1701 4th Street SW
Albuquerque, 87102 United States

5:30 pm to 6:15 pm – Chilean folkloric music performed live
6:15 pm to 6:45 pm – “Violeta Parra in context” historical presentation by Dr. Carson Morris
7:00 pm – Film Screening

Andrés Wood’s Violeta Went to Heaven tells the story of famed Chilean singer and folklorist Violeta Parra, tracing her evolution from impoverished child to international sensation and Chile’s national hero, and interweaving key set pieces from Parra’s life to capture the swirling intensity of her inner contradictions, fallibilities, and passions. Loosely based on Ángel Parra’s memoirs of his mother, the film offers a multi-faceted and lyrical portrayal of an influential figure in world music and complex cultural icon of Chile’s history. Violeta Parra’s revival of Chilean traditional music galvanized a socially and politically committed pan-Latin American folk music movement—“nueva canción“—and became a reference for other Latin American artists committed to their national legacies.

2011; Spanish with English subtitles; 110 minutes; not rated.

Our Lady of the Tortilla

September 1September 11
Wells Fargo Auditorium 1701 4th Street SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

Thursday-Sunday, September 1-4 & 8-11, 2022
7:30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday
2pm on Sunday

Sandia Performing Arts Company and the NHCC present Our Lady of the Tortilla by Luis Santeiro, directed by Rayrey Griego.

The Cruz family is volatile even in the best of times. On this particular day, Nelson, the youngest son, enters the house in a panic to hide the more obvious religious relics from the sight of his “gringo” girlfriend, who is visiting for the weekend. Nelson’s mother, Dahlia, is obsessed with retrieving her husband from his new girlfriend; Eddie, her elder son, shows up in a van with his failed life and pregnant girlfriend. But the “real” pandemonium is caused by sweet, long-suffering Dolores, Dahlia’s old-maid sister, when she sees the face of the Holy Virgin in a tortilla. This miracle brings hordes of believers and reporters to camp out on the Cruz’s lawn to await further miracles. As the family struggles with beliefs and conflicts, old and new, the endurance of family love is revealed to be the real miracle.

Bank of America Theatre 1701 4th Street SW
Albuquerque, 87102 United States

5:00 p.m. – 6:45 p.m.- Film Screening

6:45 p.m. Talk with journalist Fietta Jarque

Dennis Hopper’s second feature film after making his directorial debut with Easy Rider. The Last Movie (1971) was shot in Peru and edited at the artist’s home in Taos (New Mexico).

Consciously self-reflexive and co-written by Hopper and Rebel Without a Cause screenwriter Stewart Stern. The Last Movie follows a Hollywood movie crew in the midst of making a western in a remote Peruvian village. When production wraps, Hopper, as the baleful stuntman Kansas, remains, attempting to find redemption in the isolation of Peru and the arms of a former prostitute. Meanwhile, the local Indians have taken over the abandoned set and begun to stage a ritualistic re-enactment of the production – with Kansas as their sacrificial lamb.

1971; 108 min; Color; English, Rated R
