¡Globalquerque!: International Cinema Series: The Earth Is Blue as an Orange

September 21
Bank of America Theatre 1701 4th Street SW
Albuquerque, 87102 United States

7:00 pm

Single mother Hanna and her four children live in the front-line war zone of Donbas, Ukraine. While the outside world is made up of bombings and chaos, the family is managing to keep their home as a safe haven, full of life and full of light. Every member of the family has a passion for cinema, motivating them to shoot a film inspired by their own life during a time of war. The creative process raises the question of what kind of power the magical world of cinema could have during times of disaster, and how to picture war through fiction. For Hanna and the children, transforming trauma into a work of art is the ultimate way to stay human.

2020; Written and Directed by Iryna Tsilyk; 74 min; Russian, Ukrainian with English subtitles, not rated

Danny Zelisko Presents Lewis Black: Off The Rails!

Known as the KingofRant, Lewis Black uses his trademark style of comedic yelling and finger pointing to expose the absurdities of life. His comedic brilliance makes people laugh at life’s hypocrisies and the insanity he sees in the world.

A GRAMMY Award-winning stand-up comedian, Black performs his critically acclaimed shows more than 200 nights annually, to capacity audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States. He is one of a few performers to sell out renowned theaters including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, and the main stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas, with a sold-out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City. Since 2014, Black has done over 400 live-streaming shows, called The Rant Is Due, at the end of each of his stand-up performances.
