El lugar de las fresas 1

Film: El lugar de las fresas

7 pm

Lina, now in her seventies, has always been a farmer, going at dawn to Turin’s Porta Palazzo, Europe’s biggest open air market, to sell her vegetables and strawberries. Her life has always been “home, church, and work,” until she encounters a young Moroccan immigrant looking for a job. The filmmaker’s documentation of their evolving lives and relationship over the next several years addresses themes of immigration, globalization, and transformation, as well as the enduring value of working with the land. Presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.

2015; directed by Maite Vitoria Daneris; Spanish with English subtitles; 93 minutes; not rated.
Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show

Un día más sobre la Tierra 1

Revolutions International Theatre Festival: Engine, Un día más sobre la tierra

8 pm

Engine, from Argentina and France, presents Un día más sobre la tierra, a concert featuring violent and sophisticated guitars, overlapped by the raw voices of two actor-musicians. The songs, woven of Latin American rhythms and rock dynamics, punctuated by simple and powerful theatrical ruptures, poetically tell the story of an ancient device floating unseen over the skies of the world. The elegant protagonists sing without stopping, dance scandalously, and throw themselves on the floor with attractive complicity. Engine, the always invisible machine, carries the rhythm of the concert. They evoke it with their songs, and if the machine appears, they might remember something special.  If not, it will have been a great waste of vital forces, and people will wonder how only a couple of people can make such a sublime mess.
$26 w/ $6 discount for students & seniors; group rates available

Cesar Chavez Logo.1

24th Annual César Chávez Day

April 1

March—11 am
Fiesta—12 pm

Join the 24th annual César Chávez Day celebration, with a march—La Marcha de Justicia—beginning at 10:30 am at the Dolores Huerta Gateway Park, picking up additional participants at the National Hispanic Cultural Center at 11:00 am, and ending at noon on the NHCC’s Plaza Mayor. Following the march, the family fiesta at the Center includes poetry, dancing, community exhibits, children’s activities and games, food, a keynote speech by Dolores Huerta, and live music. Additionally, the 2017 César Chávez and Dolores Huerta ¡Sí Se Puede! awards will be presented to people who have served the community in the spirit of the United Farm Workers leaders.

Dolores Huerta, a native of Dawson, New Mexico, was co-founder, with César Chávez, of the United Farm Workers Union. In 2012, Huerta was recognized for her decades of
ceaseless civil rights and labor organizing when Barack Obama granted her the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award, the greatest civilian honor in the United States. Huerta’s appearance at this event coincides with Bernalillo County’s renaming of Gateway Park in the South Valley as Dolores Huerta Gateway Park, and follows on the heels of the world premiere of the movie Dolores, a documentary on Huerta’s life, at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.

Shuttle service and ribbon cutting

Before the march begins, there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony and a keynote address by Dolores Huerta at the park beginning at  9:30 am. Parking is limited at the park so shuttles will pick up participants at the NHCC education building from 8:30-9:30 am. There will be additional shuttles after the ribbon cutting to return people who can’t participate in the march to the NHCC.

This is  a free public event

Epics of Empire and Frontier cover

Reading & Booksigning: Celia López-Chávez, Epics of Empire and Frontier

2 pm to 4 pm

Join author Celia López-Chávez for a reading from her new book Epics of Empire and Frontier: Alonso de Ercilla and Gaspar de Villagrá as Spanish Colonial Chroniclers.

Epics of Empire and Frontier reveals new ways of thinking about the themes of empire and frontier from the muse of the epic poems La Araucana by the Spanish nobleman Alonso de Ercilla and Historia de la Nueva México by Gaspar de Villagrá, Mexican-born captain under Juan de Oñate in New Mexico, both of which valorize the Spanish conquest of native peoples. Employing historical and literary analysis that goes from the global to the regional, and from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries, López-Chávez considers Ercilla and Villagrá not only as writers but as citizens and subjects of the powerful Spanish empire.
