A soft-spoken young woman in a button-up shirt and black slacks bows her head. “Ya’at’eeh,” she says quietly in Navajo, then switches to English. “I became a mother at age 17,” begins Reina. She now has three young daughters.
Albuquerque’s middle school and high school students are raising awareness of child and family homelessness in the Duke City. The short films these budding cinematic masters have created will benefit the children of Cuidando Los Niños, a local nonprofit caring for kids and families stricken by homelessness. You can also snack on tasty hors d’oeuvres while admiring the artwork of local children and professionals. Truly a feast for the eyes, the stomach and the soul. The festival gets underway at 6:30 p.m. Please RSVP to email@example.com.
