¡Globalquerque!, New Mexico's 11th Annual Celebration of World Music & Culture, returns to the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW) on September 25 and 26. This year's festival features three stages of music from five continents over two nights. To get audiences in the cultural mood, the festival has been teaming with the NHCC to present an International Cinema Series throughout September. The series comes to a close this week with three more films. On Thursday, Sept. 24, at 7pm, there will be a screening of the Spanish film Tasting Menu in the Bank of America Theater. This food-filled romantic comedy spends the night at one of the greatest restaurants in the world as patrons from around the world gather for one final dinner service before the doors shut for good. The film will be shown in Catalan with English subtitles. On Saturday, Sept. 26, you can catch the New Mexico premiere of Katie Curran’s award-winning documentary about the politics of the global food system, Greening the Revolution, starting at 11am. Film screenings close out at 2:15pm on Saturday with the drama Timbuktu from France, Mauritania and Mali. It relates the story of a young cattle herder in Timbuktu who tries to keep his distance from the local jihadist militia. The film will be presented in English, French, Arabic, Bambara and Songhay with English subtitles. All films are free and open to the public, but tickets must be picked up at the box office one hour prior to showtime. For more info, go to nhccnm.org or globalquerque.org.
