The People Before Profit film and lecture series returns to the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice (202 Harvard SE) Thursday, Sept. 6. The Academy Award-nominated film My Country, My Country will be screened at 7 p.m. This eye-opening documentary explores the January 2005 Iraqi elections through the eyes of one seemingly ordinary Sunni doctor who decided to run for office. It’s a rare look at life inside occupied Iraq and a real testament to this vague concept we call democracy. The guest speaker will be Bob Anderson from Stop the War Machine. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.

Hispanic Vets

Inspired (that’s the positive word for it) by the controversy surrounding filmmaker Ken Burns’ lack of Hispanic voices in his upcoming PBS documentary about World War II, the New Mexico Department of Veterans Services and the National Hispanic Cultural Center have joined forces to present two film tributes to our nation’s Hispanic veterans. On Sunday, Sept. 9, beginning at 2 p.m., the NHCC will screen two short documentaries: “Latino Stories of World War II” and “Colors of Courage: Sons of New Mexico, Prisoners of Japan.” The screenings are free to the public and will take place inside the Cultural Center’s Bank of America Theatre. This special event will begin with an introduction to the Legacy of Letters Project, in which the State of New Mexico Archives will help compile the personal stories of veterans in their own words. A second tribute, focusing on the films of Mexican-American documentary producer Hector Galan, will take place on Friday, Sept. 28. For more details, log on to
