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.

Elena Molina‘s documentary Quand j’étais petit is the story of N’Sele Malone, as well as the story of childhood in many African countries, where violence and helplessness are often unavoidable. Now one of the most renowned puppeteers in West Africa, Malone uses the marionettes that he constructs in his Burkina Faso workshop to free and transform his early memories. The film is a fable illuminating the future, through the magic of the story and the timeless ability of stories to teach us how to live and grow.

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.

Marisa Benito’s Dúctiles examines images of women that have been used and shaped by social norms and historical events of different eras, generating visual coding and stereotypes that have been filtered, in one way or another, through male hierarchies that have used them to attribute norms of ethical and moral conduct to women, as well as specific functions and spaces in society.

¡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!

Virtual Día de los Muertos Concert: Las Flores del Valle of Albuquerque

7 pm
Museum of International Folk Art Facebook page HERE

Every year the NHCC holds its annual Despedida (Farewell) to celebrate Día de los Muertos with music, poetry, and hands-on art at this time-honored community gathering. Unfortunately, with the current health restrictions, this year’s Despedida is another wonderful in-person event that has been canceled. We are going to miss our ofrendas around the NHCC campus, as well as the music, poetry, traditional hot chocolate mexicano, pan de muerto, and the opportunity to share our heartfelt memories with you, our familia.

But we can still celebrate, and we hope you will join our friends at the Museum of International Folk Art (MOIFA) for a virtual Día de los Muertos concert featuring our friends Carol and Leila—Las Flores del Valle of Albuquerque.
