Event Details

Join us every first Thursday of the month during our Summer Hours for a monthly film screening curated by Standard Fantastic Pictures’ (SFP) Omar Lopex. The screening  will include a feature film inspired by our special exhibition Celia Álvarez Muñoz: Breaking the Binding and local SFP shorts. Like Álvarez Muñoz, Standard Fantastic Pictures examines the nature of the border and embraces an ‘artivistst’ (art + activist) perspective in artmaking. 

June 1: Days of Heaven (1978) and local SFP shorts by Hugo Crosthwaite: CARAVAN  (2022) and Tía Juana Mi Amor (2020) 

July 6: The Saddest Music on the World (2003) by Guy Maddin and local SFP film Ana, Who They Pulled Out of the River (2022) by Omar Lopex 

August 3: The Border (1982) by Tony Richardson and local projects from the Inaugural Standard Fantastic Pictures Transborder Film Fellowship: Las Señales Ya No Están en el Cielo (2023) by Jafet Arzate and Ella Se Queda (2023) by Marinthia Gutierrez 

The Standard Fantastic Transborder Film Fellowship, sponsored by Kodak and FotoKem, provides youth in the US/MX transborder region with resources & mentorship to produce 16mm narrative films. The films by Inaugural Fellows Gutierrez and Arzate are stories inspired by our border region’s unique culture.
