Reel New Mexico, Santa Fe’s only monthly independent film series, returns on Thursday, June 13. This time around, organizers will be screening the award-winning drama Becoming Eduardo, Las Cruces director Rod McCall’s story about a juvenile delinquent attending an alternative high school in small-town New Mexico who meets and falls in love with a poetry-writing, college-bound girl. The film is based on the novel Alternative Ed by LouAnne Johnson and won three awards at the Santa Fe Film Festival in 2009. McCall, an instructor at New Mexico State University, will take questions from the audience following the screening.
