Teen Tarantinos

What are the kids doing? It’s a legitimate question, usually raised by adults who have their suspicions about the activities of shiftless youth. But the New Mexico Film Office is asking, because they’ve got a very good answer. On Sunday, April 21, NM Film will host the monthly New Mexico Filmmakers experience at the CCA Cinematheque in Santa Fe (1050 Old Pecos Trail). From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., a panel of middle and high school age film students will answer the topic “What Are The Kids Doing?” Turns out, in New Mexico, they’re learning about and producing film and video projects.

A Close Call

Public broadcasting breathes a sigh of relief

PBS President Paula Kerger doesn't look battle-worn. But the last few months can't have been easy. Earlier this year, Republicans in Congress waged a campaign to ax all federal funding slated for public broadcasting. The Alibi sat down with Kerger during her brief time in Albuquerque to talk about the future of public media and this year's battle to save it.

Cooking With Tea

Brew a world of flavor from this versatile plant

Tea has had multiple applications for centuries—but only recently by Westerners—as an exciting component in Asian cooking: to infuse flavors into meats, jazz up marinades and sauces, and to create broths and garnishes. Here, food writer Mina Yamashita shares one of her favorite recipes.

Public broadcasting is on the chopping block

Republicans in Congress have moved six bills that would ax all money for public media, including NPR, PBS and others. Conservatives have argued that those news outlets lean toward the left.

A letter to the editor from Polly Anderson, general manager of KNME, says the station has been valuable resource for 52 years and that it reaches 650,000 households. “Public Television is the largest provider of preschool education in New Mexico,” she wrote. (Dude. Sesame Street.)

An online campaign, 170millionamericans.org was launched to highlight the importance of public media. Americans each pay about $1.35 per year for public media, according to the site. And every month, 170 million make use of public television stations and radio stations. The site includes suggestions for how you can help. Fill out a message that can be sent to your congresspeople, or call Congress at (202) 224-3121.
