Reel New Mexico will be debuting on March 8th! The time of the event is from 7pm-10pm.
The first program will feature four short films.
“Surreal Estate,” by Lori Romero
This film won the Audience award at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival. It takes a comedic and surrealistic look at one man’s struggle to rent a house.
“Mistersky,” by Paul Marcus
This film is a brief visual homage to Detroit that showed at the 2011 “Currents” exhibition in the Santa Fe Railyard.
“Una Causa Noble,” by M/K Productions
This is a short feature film that tells a heartrending story of a young Mexican who enlists in the U.S. Army to obtain citizenship for his family. It was a selection of the Santa Fe Film Festival and numerous other festivals.
“Take my Hand and Walk with Me,” by Marga Matakovich
This is a Ken Burns-style documentary about a 93-year-old Lakota woman who served as an Army nurse in World War II. Reel New Mexico is premiering this film.
As an important part of the series, filmmakers representing each film will discuss and answer questions about their work following the screenings.
Reel New Mexico was formed to fill a need for an ongoing, noncompetitive venue for New Mexico filmmakers. Unlike film festivals, Reel New Mexico has no entry fee and gives no awards. Proceeds from the $5 suggested audience donations will be split among participating filmmakers after expenses are met.
