Angie Reza Tures and other guest filmmakers introduce this film screening on the subject of how women filmmakers are interacting with issues connected with the US-Mexico border. Femme Frontera is a collective of six women filmmakers from the US-Mexico border dedicated to inspiring and empowering female filmmakers from both sides of the border.

Whether they are real or imaginary, physical or intangible, boundaries divide and disquiet in Femme Frontera, a well-told, deeply felt series of narrative and documentary shorts. Resisting stereotypical, hyper masculine depictions of the Latina experience that so often reduce characters of color to the status of flimsy cardboard cutouts, the directors of Femme Frontera prioritize feeling and style ahead of plot as they explore border experiences. As a collective, Femme Frontera, advocates for women's voices through its annual showcase, media education workshops and community outreach.

Femme Frontera is also giving a workshop «Smart Device Film Making» on Saturday, February 24, 10am-noon at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.

These events are part of the series of public programs in conjunction with the exhibition «The US-Mexico Border: Place, Imagination and Possibility» on view at 516 ARTS & Albuquerque Museum through April 14. For a full schedule of public programs, visit 516arts.org.
