Reel World


Experiments in Cinema continues this week at several venues around Albuquerque (Guild Cinema, Southwest Film Center, National Hispanic Cultural Center). One of the most exciting parts of this week-long experimental film jamboree is the hands-on workshops led by media artists from around the world. On Thursday, April 17, for example, you can check out “Cinematography—The Serbian Way.” Professional cinematographer Miodrag Milosevic will show clips from some of the films he has shot while discussing the directors’ and his own methods for realizing their vision. Visual expression, digital vs. analogue, on-set problem solving and low-budget production techniques are some of the topics he’ll cover in this two-hour workshop. It will take place from 2 to 4pm in UNM’s Ceria Building, 3rd Floor Student Lounge. The workshop is free, but seating is limited.

Star Wars, dub-style

The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe will host a special screening of the Navajo-language version of Star Wars: Episode IV on Friday, April 18, at 1pm and 6pm. If you haven’t had a chance to catch one of these rare screenings, you should. It’s a must for Navajo speakers and a treat for hardcore fans of George Lucas’ 1977 classic. This professionally dubbed version speaks to both the malleability of the mythos and the cross-cultural appeal of the film. Seating is limited, and reservations are required. Call (505) 476-1269 to secure your spot. For more info, visit The museum is located at 710 Camino Lejo off Old Santa Fe Trail.
