Spanish Cinema—El Gallo de Oro, Roberto Gavaldón's 1964 drama, is considered a hallmark of Mexican cinema. This romantic story steeped in Mexican tradition has two men—one rich, one poor—competing for the affections of one señorita. The National Hispanic Cultural Center will be screening it this Thursday night, April 29, at 6:30 p.m. as part of the NHCC Spanish Film series. Admission is free. The film will show in NHCC's Wells Fargo Auditorium, located at 1701 Fourth Street NW. The film is in Spanish with English subtitles.

Indigenous Cinema—UNM's Department of Anthropology is currently celebrating its 75th anniversary. In conjunction with Nizhoni Week and the ongoing Gathering of Nations Pow Wow, the Department will be hosting an Indigenous Film Series. On Thursday, April 29, there will be a screening of two short films. “Honey Moccasin” is an experimental comedy/mystery unraveling a theft on Reservation land. It is directed by Mohawk Shelley Niro. “Shush” is a dark drama about the burden of domestic abuse and was selected for the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. It is directed by Navajo Larry Blackhorse Lowe. Both films will be shown at 7:30 p.m. in the UNM Anthropology Lecture Hall, Room 163. Tickets are $6 at the door.

The following day, the department will host an Indigenous Film Roundtable Discussion. The discussion will include high school students and a select number of Native American filmmakers, including directors Lena Carr (Diné), Darrin Kipp (Blackfeet) and Tazbeh Chavez (Bishop Paiute) plus Bird Runningwater (Apache) from the Sundance Insitute. The discussion is free and open to the public and will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. in UNM's Hibben Hall, Room 105.
