Paul Barnes’s Weekly Update on What’s Happening

Wicked Little Letters has been keeping the CCA audience in stitches with the antics of Olivia Colman and Jesse Buckley over those profanity-laced letters and the mystery of who wrote them. So, we can’t let them go – word of mouth is too strong. The uptight Edith and the foul-mouthed Rose will be with us for another week (April 12-18).

In addition, CCA is pleased to be screening Lost Angel: The Genius of Judee Sill, a new documentary that is the never-before-told story of a forgotten folk-rock icon. It’s an intimate look at one-of-a-kind singer-songwriter from 1970s Los Angeles, Judee Sill. It charts her life from a troubled adolescence of addiction, armed robbery and prison through her meteoric rise in the music world and early tragic death.
 
Plus, CCA is screening a startling new rediscovery of a lost African film, the 1979 musical West Indies: The Fugitive Slaves of Liberty directed by the Mauritanian director Med Hondo. In the history of African cinema, Hondo is only now being recognized for his remarkable career.

This week in our Cinema Gallery, we are opening Intersections, a new exhibition by Santa Fe artist Morgan Barnard, with an opening-night reception on Friday, April 12 from 5pm to 7pm.
   
In addition on Saturday, April 13 at 4pm, CCA is hosting a Special Screening of A Decent Home, a feature-length documentary film by Sara Terry that addresses urgent issues of class and economic inequity through the lives of mobile home park residents who can’t afford housing anywhere else. A Decent Home is being presented in partnership with the Santa Fe International Film Festival, the Chainbreaker Collective, Mayor Alan Webber, and the City of Santa Fe.
