¡Globalquerque! and the NHCC present the International Cinema Series in September: films in this series are presented in partnership with ¡Globalquerque!, New Mexico’s Eleventh Annual Celebration of World Music and Culture, returning to the NHCC on September 25 & 26. . 

This screening is the New Mexico premiere of Katie Curran’s award-winning documentary, shot in Mexico, Cuba, Haiti, Brazil, India, Kenya, and Zambia as well as the U.S. With interviews from Monsanto, the FDA, Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, and Vandana Shiva, the independent, grassroots feature won awards for Best Documentary at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival and Best Female Director at the Oaxaca International Film Festival.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by the director. Curran, a self-taught New Mexican filmmaker, is president of the nonprofit Anartist Films and has previously worked for documentaries from PBS, NOVA, and Power Paths, as well as freelancing for print and National Public Radio. After years of activism around social and environmental issues, she backpacked across the U.S. and around the world to collect footage for her directorial debut, Greening the Revolution.
