On Thursday, January 12, at 6 pm, Collected Works will celebrate the encounter between the storyteller and the screen, with a special event that features a trailer and clips from the new oral history documentary, Nasario remembers the Río Puerco. Speakers include celebrated folklorist Nasario García, director Shebana Coelho, poet Anne Valley-Fox and the production team, storytelling opportunities for you to share your recuerdo/memory, and an update on the status of the film, which New Mexico PBS has expressed an interest in broadcasting.
The film had had an unlikely beginning – at Collected Works itself when director Shebana Coelho heard Nasario García tell stories of his boyhood in the now ghost towns of New Mexico’s Río Puerco valley.
Join us at Collected Works where the story began–hear our recuerdos, our tales and let yours flow. Listening makes stories live – our story, your story.
