South of the Border Cinema

Beginning Thursday, Oct. 1, the National Hispanic Cultural Center will begin a monthlong series of contemporary films from Latin America. The fourth annual Cine en Construcción series kicks off with the Mexican film Fuera del Cielo about a group of people, including a recently freed convict, who get involved in a robbery. The series continues on Oct. 15 with the Uruguayan film Alma Mater about a lonely supermarket checkout girl whose life is shaken up by a charismatic transvestite. Oct. 22 brings the Argentine film Extraño, which focuses on the delicate relationship between an ex-surgeon and a young pregnant woman. The series wraps up on Oct. 29, with the Argentine film La Demolición, in which a demolition worker befriends a delusional woman living in an abandoned factory. All films are in Spanish with English subtitles. Shows begin at 7 p.m. in the NHCC’s Bank of America Theater (1701 Fourth Street SW). Cine in Construcción is free and open to the public. For more details, log on to nhccnm.org.

Will Work for Film

The Southwest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival is less that 10 days away and organizers are still looking for volunteers. If you’d like to be involved and give back to your community (of even if you just want to watch a bunch of free films), volunteering for SWGLFF might be the ticket you’re looking for. Right now, the fest needs bodies to staff its four venues, which include Guild Cinema, the Southwest Film Center at UNM, Bank of America Theater at the National Hispanic Cultural Center and the KiMo Theatre. Key volunteer positions include box office, venue manager, ushers, crowd control and membership table. For more information, please send an e-mail to volunteer@closetcinema.org.

Pecos Premiere

On Saturday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. the CCA Cinematheque in Santa Fe will premiere the locally shot thriller Pecos Falls. The film is described as a classic cat-and-mouse chase through the surreal terrain of Northern New Mexico, in which a modern-day cowboy and his girlfriend must “elude the predations of a deranged and manipulative hunting guide.” The film stars Ramon Frank (3:10 to Yuma), Jenny Gabrielle (The Astronaut Farmer) and Chris Dempsey (Sunshine Cleaning). Pecos Falls represents the feature debut of writer/director Matt Holloway. To check out a trailer, log on to pecosfalls.com.
