Drug War

Award-winning author (The American Way of War) and filmmaker (Why We Fight) Eugene Jarecki will visit Albuquerque this weekend to introduce his new documentary The House I Live In. The film won the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Shot in 20 states, The House I Live In takes a critical look at America’s war on drugs, relating the stories of individuals who have been impacted on many levels—from dealers to narcotics officers to inmates in federal prison. Jarecki will speak following the 8 p.m. screening on Friday, Nov. 9, at Guild Cinema (3405 Central NE).

Bone Up on Your O’Keeffe

The film accompanies an exhibition of Sharpe’s oil paintings based on “exerpts and artifacts” from the film. “Bone Wind Fire” will be shown Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 1 and 6 p.m. in the museum’s education annex (123 Grant). This event is free and open to the public.
