New Deal, New Prints

In commemoration of the 75th anniversary of FDR’s New Deal, the National Archives has restored and released a number of films from its collection. The Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe will present a one-evening festival of these U.S. government-produced films from the Depression. Five newly struck prints of “The Road Is Open Again” (1933), “We Work Again” (1937), “The Plow That Broke the Plains” (1936), “The River” (1937) and “The City” (1939) will screen on Saturday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. General admission is $10 or $5 for students and seniors. The Lensic is located at 211 W. San Francisco.

Bikes in the Buff

Do you like bicycles? I mean, really like bicycles? On Monday, Oct. 27, Basement Films is welcoming the short erotic film festival Bike Porn 2: Bikesploitation on the Albuquerque stop of its “Westward Ho!” tour. The curator of this now annual program, Reverend Phil, will be there to introduce his collection of sexy shorts spotlighting a “synthesis of transportation and sexual freedoms.” Bike porn-related swag will be for sale as will a selection of sexually charged bicycle erotica. Due to adult content, no one under 18 will be admitted. Doors open at 8 p.m., show starts at 8:30 p.m. at The Agency (114 Fourth Street SW). Admission is $5 with a bike, $6 without.

For the Birds

On Friday and Saturday, Oct. 24 and 25, the KiMo Theatre goes back to nature with Wild Film, the international wildlife film festival. This two-day festival spotlights award-winning short- and feature-length films about animals. Friday, for example, trains the binoculars on bird films and culminates with a documentary by George Butler (Pumping Iron) about the rediscovery of the seemingly extinct Ivory-Crested Woodpecker. Saturday night takes viewers to Borneo for a glimpse at orangutans, to Mongolia for a ride with reindeer and to the great Northwest for an encounter with grizzlies. Tickets are $15 for adults per evening or $5 for children. For a full film schedule, go to
