Wednesday, September 20th at 5 pm we present: Fabric of the Cosmos: Universe or Multiverse. Traditionally, “universe” has meant “all there is.” But we may actually live in an expanding “sea” of multiplying universes: a “Multiverse.” This program explains some of the weirdest aspects of quantum mechanics: uncertainty and entanglement. Despite the absurdity of these behaviors they have been confirmed time and again. We’ll discuss how ‘the impossible’ is real!

Narco Cultura

By David Johanssen

To a growing number of Mexicans and Latinos, narco-traffickers have become iconic outlaws, glorified by ‘narco-corrido’ music which praises their new models of fame and success. They represent a pathway out of the ghetto, nurturing a new ‘American dream’ fueled by the thrills of money, drugs, and violence.

This week, Shelter Theater presents Narco Cultura, an explosive look at the drug cartels' pop culture influence on both sides of the border as experienced by an LA narco-corrido singer dreaming of stardom and a Juarez crime scene investigator on the front line of Mexico's drug war. The Washington Post says, “This haunting documentary contrasts songs saluting Mexican drug lords as heroic bandits with the harrowing reality of life in murder-stained Juarez.” We will have a discussion on how to deal with this glamorization of criminality after the documentary.

Francisco “Pancho” Villa was a Mexican revolutionary leader who advocated for the poor and promised agrarian reform. Though also a ruthless bandit and opportunist, many Mexicans remember him fondly as their ‘Robin Hood’, fighting the dictator Porfirio Diaz. In 1909, Villa was portrayed as a hero in the U.S. media too until Woodrow Wilson withdrew his support in 1916. Outraged, Villa led an army across the border and staged a brutal raid against Columbus, New Mexico. Bandito or hero? You decide, as we explore Hollywood’s love affair with Francisco “Pancho” Villa.

We continue to explore Hollywood’s love affair with Francisco “Pancho” Villa on Friday, September 22th at 5 pm with And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself. Filmed almost entirely in and around San Miguel, this HBO film recounts the odd story of Pancho Villa’s film career when he invited American filmmakers to film his heroic battles against the Mexican government. What results is a surreal film-within-a-film as silent film stars compete with Pancho’s outsized ego (as magnificently portrayed by Antonio Banderas) for the camera’s affection. You’re sure to see faces and places you know in this epic film!

Y Tu Mamá También on Friday, September 29th at 5 pm. Alfonso Cuarón directed and co-wrote this art-house hit from Mexico. The funny and moving coming-of-age story centers on two teens who get an education in love when they take a road trip with a liberated, unhappily-married woman. L.A. Weekly raves, “Easily one of the sexiest and funniest films about class struggle ever made… fresh and alive!”
