The South Broadway Cultural Center, in collaboration with the Consulate of Mexico, is bringing a series of classic Spanish-language films with The Golden Age of Mexican Cinema. The series gets underway on Wednesday, July 30, with 1943’s Flor silvestre, Dolores del Rio’s first Mexican film after her long career in Hollywood. The film, chronicling one young woman’s adventures during the Mexican Revolution, also features Mexican cinema icon Pedro Armendáriz. The next film is Wednesday, Aug. 6. Armendáriz and del Rio reunite for Bugambilia, about a charming girl looking for love under the watchful eye of a controlling father. On Wednesday, Aug. 13, del Rio and Armendáriz star in Las Abandonadas, about a young pregnant woman abandoned by her fiancé. Wednesday, Aug. 20, brings La Perla, in which greedy foreign doctor conspires to fleece a rural family (Armendáriz and María Elena Marqués). The festival closes out on Wednesday, Aug. 27, with Pueblerina. In this 1949 drama, a recently released convict (Roberto Cañedo) tries to rebuild his life with a new bride (Columba Domínguez) but is stymied by a couple of corrupt local landowners. All films in the series start at 7pm. Admission is free and open to the public. The films are presented in Spanish with English subtitles. For more info go to cabq.gov/sbcc.
