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.

Free and open to the public

Pioneras: Mujeres de Vanguardia/Pioneers: Women of the Avant-Garde, Después de… Atado y bien atado

March 26

12 pm (MST)
Available for 48 hours

Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel HERE

The second part of the documentary Después de…, by Cecilia and José Juan Bartolomé, features politicians, professionals, and citizens from all walks of life as they express their opinions of the changes that have befallen Spain during the years of the country’s transition to democracy following the death of Francisco Franco. The outspokenness of some of these testimonies and the sense of tension that pervades the film caused its release to be held up until late 1983. Después de… places its directors in the vanguard of social documentarians who continue to play a critical role in Spanish cinema.

1979-1981; Spanish with English subtitles; 90 minutes; not rated

Film: Del corto al largo (y viceversa), Asamblea

12 pm (MST)
Available for 48 hours

Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel HERE

Álex Montoya’s first feature film, an adaptation of the play La gente by Juli Disla and Jaume Pérez (who also wrote the screenplay for the film), is a comic look at the decision-making processes of assemblies formed as a result of political movements after 2011. In a last meeting before the summer, Josep wants to move forward on the approval of a plan, while respecting differing ideologies and allowing all members an opportunity to speak. The group’s attempt to reach a unanimous agreement challenges progressive notions of participation.

2019; Spanish with English subtitles; 75 minutes; not rated.
