Film: Ciclo Ángela Molina, Las cosas del querer

12 pm (available for 48 hours)

Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel HERE

Jaime Chávarrri’s Las cosas del querer follows the trajectory of a song-and-dance duo and their piano player in the 1940s, with a look into their backstage lives and an evocation of the popular music of their times. As the group’s rise to fame and fortune parallels Franco’s consolidation of power in collusion with the Spanish aristocracy, their return to Madrid marks the most difficult  moments of their careers. Lavishly produced and vibrantly entertaining as a musical, Las cosas del querer also addresses issues of fascism, feminism, and homophobia in postwar Spain.

Film: Ciclo Ángela Molina, La mitad del cielo

12 pm (available for 48 hours)

Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel HERE

Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón had a significant influence on Ángela Molina’s career, directing several of the films she made in the years of transition to democracy, including Camada negra (1977), El corazón del bosque (1979), and Demonios en el jardín (1982). In La mitad del cielo, set after the Spanish Civil War, Rosa, the daughter of a humble family in Asturias, travels to Madrid with her own daughter following the death of her husband. With the help of the influential supplier who hires her to work in his household, she obtains a market position that serves as the point of departure for a meteoric career rise. Rosa ultimately opens an exclusive restaurant that transforms into a political and intellectual meeting place.

Instituto Cervantes Albuquerque and the NHCC present the Cortos en femenino film series during the month of December, a month dedicated to cortometraje (short subjects) with “[ED+C] El día más corto”—the shortest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere. Designed by Trama, coordinator of women’s festivals in Spain, the series celebrates the talented female directors working in this format with screenings of four very different short films—two dramatic works, one documentary, and one montage.

In Sara Fantova’s autobiographical film No me despertéis, teenage Jone is a student at a secondary school in Bilbao where the tense atmosphere reflects the social reality of the political division of the Basque Country in 2009. When her father assumes a position with the Basque Government requiring the services of a bodyguard, he will leave his former life behind, and Jone will have to learn to live between two worlds as well, and to understand that not everything is black or white.

A young man helps an old lady carry her laundry up to her house. Once inside, she seems reluctant to let him go. The environment in which everyday life goes on always has its lights and shadows, and appearances are often deceiving. Centrifugado, Mireia Noguera’s first film, is a dazzling demonstration of ellipsis and humanity.

¡Globalquerque! Cross-Cultural Crossover Encore

2 pm

Afro-Latin Jazz Alliance YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/c/AfroLatinJazzAlliance

Free

Join us December 4, 2020 for an ENCORE performance of the ¡Globalquerque! Cross-Cultural Crossover, presented in partnership with Arturo O’Farrill’s Afro-Latin Jazz Alliance as part of their La Paza @ Digital Village YouTube Series!  

The program features four past festival acts—Rahim AlHaj (Iraq), Nation Beat (Brazil/USA), Vivalda Ndula (Angola) and Nohe & Sus Santos (Honduras/New Mexico) collaborating on one another’s songs, deconstructing them and re-presenting them through a cross-cultural lens. Chats with the artists in between songs—where some of them were meeting face-to-face for the first time after recording together—give a glimpse at the process and all the emotions that went with it!
