In La mano invisible, set in a bare industrial warehouse, a group of workers, including a bricklayer, a butcher, a dressmaker, a telemarketer, a waiter, a warehouse worker, a mechanic, an IT worker, and a cleaner, meet daily, mechanically doing and undoing their work with apparent normality. In front of them, dozens of spectators watch the spectacle from the darkness, while an obscure demiurge pulls the strings behind the scenes. 2017; directed by David Macián; Spanish with English subtitles; 80 minutes; rated R.

Robert Redford’s film The Milagro Beanfield War, based on John Nichols’ novel of the same name, deals with the complex relationship of history, ethnicity, and land and water rights and usage in the tiny, fictitious town of Milagro in northern New Mexico.  When impoverished farmer Joe Mondragón diverts water from the future site of a large, and lucrative, resort development to irrigate his small bean field, he sets off a chain reaction that threatens to erupt into a small war in this comedy of everyday people caught up in extraordinary circumstances.  Filmed in Truchas, NM, the quirky story with its infusion of magical realism and its colorful cast of characters features performances by Ruben Blades, Sonia Braga, Melanie Griffith, Christopher Walken, and Freddy Fender. 1988; English; 120 minutes; rated R (adult situations/language, violence).

Film: Contemporáneos en línea: La reconquista/The Reconquest

In La reconquista, Manuela and Olmo find each other again in a future they promised each other 15 years earlier, when they were teenagers and first fell in love. Based on this romantic premise, La Reconquista is a film in search of time—about the consciousness of time, about lost time and recovered time, about what we remember and don’t remember about ourselves, and about the words, gestures, and feelings to which we remain faithful because they define and challenge us in the present, the past, and the future. 2016; directed by Jonás Trueba; Spanish with English subtitles; 103 minutes; rated PG-13.
