Showcase in Burque

If you wanna sample some Native American cinema, but you don’t want to brave the tourist crowds up in Santa Fe, you can always drop by the second weekend of Two Worlds, a Festival of Native American Theater and Film, at the North Fourth Art Center. This portion of Two Worlds will take place on Friday, Aug. 22, and Saturday, Aug. 23 starting at 8 p.m. at the N4th Theater (4904 Fourth Street NW). Among the short films screening this weekend is “A Real Indian, Just Like On TV,” which was written, filmed and edited by a team of Albuquerque-area Native Americans with the guidance of movie industry professionals. It’s the humorous story of an American Indian from Malibu who gets lost in a mountain forest while making a movie for the History Channel. Visit for more info.

Gimme Skelter on DVD

Punk rock film distributor Halo-8 has joined forces with Albuquerque’s fledgeling Burning Paradise Entertainment to provide nationwide distribution for BPE’s inaugural DVD release, Gimme Skelter. The film, directed by local Albuquerque filmmaker Scott Phillips (The Stink of Flesh), features horror movie legend Gunnar Hansen (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and cult icon Trent Haaga (Citizen Toxie) alongside a cast of talented New Mexico actors. The story concerns a gang of crazy killers who roll into a tiny Southwestern town hoping to carve out their own bloody legend. The film got a wave of positive press and screened at a number of film festivals around the country. If you haven’t had a chance to pick up the bonus-filled DVD from Burning Paradise Video (800 Central SW), you can now snag it at major retail outlets like Best Buy. It hits shelves across the country this Tuesday. Tell your friends!
