Magnificent cinema

Cine Magnífico, Albuquerque’s Latino film festival, returns for its second jam-packed year this weekend. From Sept. 12 through 14, more than 15 features, documentaries and shorts will be screened. The opening night film (Friday, 7pm) is the smash hit comedy Spanish Affair (Ocho Apellidos Vascos), about an Andalusian ladies man who meets his match in a beguiling Basque woman and ends up pursuing her to a tiny mountain town. That will be proceeded by an opening night fiesta featuring pre-screening tapas and a cash bar. The closing night film (Sunday, 7pm) is We Are the Nobles (Nosotros los Nobles), a Mexican comedy about a rich entrepreneur who decides to teach his lazy offspring a lesson by staging a financial scandal. In between, films range from a family matinee of the charming Uruguayan animated tale Anina (Saturday, 11am) to a screening of the rural Nicaraguan education documentary School Days (Saturday, 2pm). Tickets are $10 general admission and $8 students/seniors. For $30 you can purchase a four-movie punch card, and for $50 you get the full-festival pass. All screenings will take place at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW).
