The National Hispanic Cultural Center gears up for this year’s ¡Globalquerque! celebration of world music and culture (hitting our city Sept. 20 and 21) with a free international cinema series. Head to the NHCC (1701 Fourth Street SW) this Thursday, Sept. 12, to see the gritty Canadian drama Rhymes for Young Ghouls. The film, screened in English and Mi’kmaq with English subtitles, centers on 15-year-old Aila, who sells weed in order to pay off her local truancy officer and avoid imprisonment in the Indian residential school of St. Dymphna’s. But when her drug money is stolen and her father is sent to prison, the precarious balance of Aila’s world is destroyed. The film starts at 7pm inside the NHCC’s Bank of America Theatre. The film series continues on Thursday, Sept. 19 at 7pm with the Argentine film Yo, Abolicionista, which focuses on the 10 years that director Mariel Rosciano spent working on two plays dealing with prostitution and human trafficking in Central and South America. On Saturday, Sept. 21, there’s a double-feature: the Chinese “Western” The Jade Pendant (at noon) and the French symphonic drama Le Concert (at 2pm). The series concludes on Thursday, Sept. 26 with the Italian documentary Fire At Sea, focusing on the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa where thousands of refugees arrive each year from Africa and the Middle East. All films are free. Tickets can be picked up at Bank of Albuquerque Theatre box office starting one hour before showtime. Tickets are distributed on a first-come/first-served basis.
