North African Sephardic Festival:

Tinghir-Jerusalem: Echoes of the Mellah

New Mexico Premiere! With special guest Dr. Ron Duncan Hart!
“A Riveting documentary" –Africultures " Winner, Best Film/Documentary" Lumières d’Afrique – France
Tinghir-Jerusalem is filmmaker and historian Kamal Hachkar’s search for a community that has since vanished, the Berber Jews of Morocco.  Hachkar is a Berber Muslim born in Tinghir, Morocco and raised in France. While he would return to Tinghir every summer with his family, it would be years before he discovered that the town once had a thriving Jewish community. By the mid-1960s though, they, along with the other 250,000 Jews of Morocco, had left for Israel.

Hachkar sets off in search of that history. What he discovers in conversations over old family photos and while listening to the stories of the Jews who left Tinghir – and the Muslims who remain – is a history of close co-operation between communities. The North African Sephardic Festival is presented by the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival. Tickets are available at www.SantaFeJFF.org

North African Sephardic Festival:

El Gusto

New Mexico Premiere!
Vibrant!” –The Hollywood Reporter • “Toe-tapping and infectious!” –Variety • “Uplifting and entertaining” –Screen Daily
El Gusto is the story of a group of musicians, Muslim and Jewish, torn apart by history and brought together by music. The story was uncovered when director/ producer Safinez Bousbia was wandering the narrow streets of the Casbah of Algiers. Drawn to a hanging mirror for sale, she walked into the shop. Instead of selling her the mirror, the craftsman told her the story of his lost friends, Jewish and Muslim musicians who had performed side-by-side a popular style of music: Chaabi.

Bousbia set off to find all of the surviving members. Almost half-a-century later, the original masters of Chaabi music reunited and began an historic journey from Algiers and Paris to Marseille to perform on stage as the El Gusto orchestra. The film, which has been called an Algerian Buena Vista Social Club, brings this moving story to the screen. The North African Sephardic Festival is presented by the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival. Tickets are available at www.SantaFeJFF.org

St. John's College Film Institute presents The Auteurs:

Andrei Tarkovsky: ANDREI RUBLEV

Presented by St. John's College
Great movies are works of visual poetry. As with other forms of poetry, our understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of movies can be deepened and enhanced by learning how to see (and read) them better. The St. John’s College Film Institute is dedicated to cultivating the skills necessary to become better readers of great movies, and provides these public screenings—each in the best screening format available—to celebrate the work of eight of cinema’s essential artists.

“The best arthouse film of all time … as close to transcendence as cinema gets.” The Guardian
Commissioned to paint the interior of the Vladimir cathedral, a great artist travels across Russia, witnessing cruelty, brutality and narrow-mindedness, and arrives at his destination in a crisis of faith. He retreats into silence, emerging only after the appearance of a spirited young artist. Tarkovsky’s controversial epic, banned and then mercilessly edited by Russian authorities, exists in its own cinematic plane, providing a startlingly visual, otherworldly vision of the challenges faced by a creative spirit. (Russia, 1966, 183m, digital)

10:30am - New Showtime of 11:00am Saturday-Sunday August 2-3; 5:30p Monday, August 4
