The Hand That Feeds

The Center for Contemporary Arts Cinematheque in Santa Fe (1050 Old Pecos Trail) is presenting a “Day of Latino Cinema” to support Somos Un Pueblo Unido. The invaluable community-based, immigrant-led organization is celebrating 20 years of organizing for worker and civil rights in New Mexico. To honor the occasion and to raise money for their work, CCA is co-presenting American Dreams/Border Realities. This four-program film event will take place Saturday, Nov. 7, starting at 11am. First up is Alex Rivera’s award-winning undocumented worker/food industry documentary The Hand That Feeds. At 2pm it’s Gregory Nava’s landmark border-crossing drama El Norte from 1983. Closing out the night at 7pm is Bernardo Ruiz’ unflinching new look at the cost of the US/Mexico drug war, Kingdom of Shadows. In between the second and third screening, at 5:30pm, the CCA will host a benefit reception and discussion featuring filmmakers Rivera, Nava and Ruiz. The topic of the discussion is “Lessons from the Border.” The three directors will also be on hand throughout the day to participate in post-film discussions. Individual film tickets are $20. The reception/discussion will run you $50. An all-day pass including films and reception is $75. For more info on the event, go to
