The timing couldn’t be better. AMC’s hit series “Breaking Bad” begins airing its final eight episodes this Sunday. On Saturday, Aug. 10, actor Giancarlo Esposito (who played the late, lamented chicken king / drug lord Gus Fring) will be in Albuquerque to receive a special award from the Albuquerque Film and Media Experience. Esposito was supposed to get the award at the inaugural AFME in June, but schedule conflicts prevented it. Now festival sponsors Robert and Sybille Redford will be returning to town to hand over that Creative Achievement award. The event will take place at the KiMo Theatre in Downtown Albuquerque. The evening begins with a screening of the 1995 thriller The Usual Suspects (in which Esposito plays the thoroughly flummoxed Det. Jack Baer). A 30-minute, post-film Q&A with Esposito will be followed by the award presentation and a dessert reception at the KiMo Theatre Art Gallery. Doors open at 5 p.m. Film starts at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and are available through kimotickets.com.
