Workshop Showcase

The public is invited to attend a public screening for the Institute of American Indian Arts’ Summer Television and Film Workshop. The six-week workshop was held in collaboration with Disney/ABC Television and featured work by 12 Native American students from across the country. Six short films were produced, including “Love’s Story,” “The Confession,” “Doc O’Mine,” “Kokopelli,” “First Impressions” and “Torn Emotions.” The free screening of these films will take place Friday, July 24, at the Library and Technology Center at IAIA’s College of Contemporary Native Arts (83 Avan Nu Po in Santa Fe).

A Good Sign

On Sunday, July 26, the New Mexico Film Museum (located in the Jean Cocteau Theater at 418 Montezuma in Santa Fe) will premiere a 35-minute documentary from 2007 Governor’s Cup winner Tommy Tischler. Tischler, a deaf filmmaker, set out to capture the inspiring story of Robert Huizar, head football coach for the New Mexico School for the Deaf. In 2006, Huizar led his team to the state championship. In 2007, he was selected to coach an all-star team consisting of four deaf and six hearing players. “Coach Huizar” will screen at 6:30 p.m. Tischler and Huizar will be available for a Q&A afterward. Admission is free, but seating is limited. The film is subtitled for the hearing impaired.
