Heritage Month: ABQ Balloon Park Drive-In Film Screening: The Milagro Beanfield War

September 17

Gates open at 6:30 pm
RV parking lot of the International Balloon Museum at Albuquerque’s Balloon Fiesta Park, 9201 Balloon Museum Drive NE,

For ticketing information and to purchase tickets, please visit www.balloonparkdrive.in. Ticket prices listed on this site are per car, rather than per patron.

As part of this year’s celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the National Hispanic Cultural Center and the Balloon Park Drive-In will screen a series of four films highlighting Hispanic/Latinx history, culture, and contributions.

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).

Tertulia Histórica Albuquerque: Revolts and Revolutions

September 19

2 pm (MTS)
Live via Zoom

Register in advance for this meeting HERE.

Rob Martínez, New Mexico State Historian

Since colonial times, revolts and resistance have been a regular part of New Mexico history. Puebloan people had revolutions against Spanish political, economic and religious institutions. Spanish colonists resisted Spanish  governors who thought themselves superior. Mexican New Mexicans resisted Mexican governors they did not like, and Pueblo and Genizaro natives joined in. New Mexicans revolted against American governors and economic institutions when things were not to their liking. And even into the twentieth and twenty first centuries, New Mexicans of all backgrounds fought for their rights. State Historian Rob Martinez looks at the history of revolts, revolutions and resistance throughout New Mexico’s fascinating history.

Film: Contemporáneos en línea: La reconquista/The Reconquest

September 25

8 pm (available for 48 hours)
Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel: https://vimeo.com/institutocervantes

Instituto Cervantes Albuquerque presents Contemporáneos en línea, an online showcase of recent work by young, independent Spanish filmmakers. The program brings together two feature films and two documentaries, demonstrating the creative coexistence of these genres in contemporary cinematography. It is presented in collaboration with the National Hispanic Cultural Center as part of the Bank of America Free Film Series.

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.
