Get all the behind-the-scenes scoop during the Q & A session with the filmmaker, Cristina McCandless following the 75 minute screening.

“From Zimbabwe to Santa Fe,” by local filmmaker Cristina McCandless, chronicles the lives of three Zimbabwean women who take us along for the ride when they venture forth to sell their baskets at the world’s largest folk art market…yes, Santa Fe’s folk art market.

But, the film isn’t about The Market – It’s about these uniquely appealing heroines who stretch beyond their personal and cultural boundaries as they reach for a better life. Their creativity, persistence and humor in the face of the unexpected twists and turns along the road, inspire us to rethink our own notions of sustainability, success and prosperity.

This documentary, filmed in partnership with two rural Zimbabwean villages and sanctioned by the country’s arts and culture leadership, offers us a violence-free, victim-free, feel-good immersion into every-day village life in Africa’s southern hemisphere.

“From Zimbabwe to Santa Fe” recently screened at the Riverside International Film Festival where it won the Audience Favorite and Jurors Best Documentary awards. The film is a New Mexico Film Office New Visions Contract Award Winner and a “mentored” project of the National Association of Latino Independent Producers, Producers Academy.

Tix: $8.50 to $10.00, advance ticket purchase recommended, (505) 473-6494
