All of Me Llévate mis amores poster

Film: All of Me/Llévate mis amores

7 pm

Based in the Mexican village of La Patrona, this documentary offers an intimate insight into a group of women, appropriately known as the Patronas, who since 1995 have prepared food, bagged it, and tossed it to migrants traveling on top of the freight train known as “La Bestia” (The Beast) as it makes its way to the U.S. Their remarkable example of love and solidarity, despite the risk both to themselves and to those riding the rails, contrasts with the violence of one of the cruelest stretches in the world for undocumented travelers. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.
2014; directed by Arturo González Villaseñor; Spanish with English subtitles; 90

Shoes for the Santo Niño

Friday at 7 pm
Saturday at 2 pm

Shoes for the Santo Niño is the story of Julianita, the youngest of eleven children, who slips out of her home one evening to take a pair of “practical” shoes that she has made to the Santo Niño de Atocha. When she enters the church, the Santo Niño and the saints come to life, and Julianita is whisked off into an evening of mystery, magic, and miracles.

This joyous piece by the Santa Fe Opera depicts the important role of the Santo Niño de Atocha as part of the traditional cultural fabric of northern New Mexico in both Hispanic and Native American families. The tale of Julianita and the Santo Niño, passed down from generation to generation, is adapted from the charming children’s story by Peggy Pond Church. The Santo Niño is known as an advocate for healing, primarily of children, and many believe that he wears the shoes left by pilgrims who visit his shrines to walk abroad and heal sick children while they sleep.
