Reel New Mexico, the state’s only ongoing film series dedicated to showing movies with a New Mexico connection, is excited to celebrate high summer with four short films, each quite different from the others. They will be screened on Thursday, July 11, starting at 7 p.m.
“Underway,” a Western fantasy from Paul Marcus, gives us a mysterious and truly haunting woman, cast out of time and place, who must search for clues about who she is and where she is going. The short comedy “All in a Day’s Work” centers around a hapless guide who keeps trying to corral a group of dazed and enthused tourists exposed for the first time to the wonders of northern New Mexico.
Meow Wolf’s chronicle of their recent exhibit, “Construction and Destruction of ‘The Due Return,'” assumes a sailing ship from another dimension has beached on the sands of Santa Fe, submerging those curious enough to enter it in a rich history from a distant world. Dusty McGowan’s “Mickey” tells the story of a down-on-his-luck boxer who stumbles on a unique opportunity to become an unlikely hero.
The filmmakers will discuss their works after the screenings.
