“Freedom Deal”

Double up

Jason “Jack Ro” Rosette will be presenting the official New Mexico premiere of two films this Sunday, Aug. 24, at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway SE). The first is Rosette’s new “Asian supernatural Vietnam war drama,” a 25-minute short called “Freedom Deal: The Story of Lucky.” The film was shot on location in Cambodia. That is paired with Rosette’s New Mexico-made indie feature Lost in New Mexico: The Strange Tale of Susan Hero. Described as “a 21st-century cloning road movie,” it was shot in 2004, completed in 2009 and after appearances at a number of film festivals is getting its first public screening in New Mexico. Admission to this double feature is free, but donations and contributions are welcome. The show starts at 3pm.
