Sorry for the late notice, but I just read this last night!


Excerpted from “Films captivate followers of local art scene” by MiChelle Jones for The Tennessean, Sunday, Jan. 22, 2012.

If you don’t have a ticket to Belcourt Theater’s sold-out Sundance event on Thursday featuring director Ay Berg and her film West of Memphis, consider heading to Watkins College of Art, Design & Film instead.

That’s when filmmaker Natalia Almada will discuss her latest project, El Velador (“The Night Watchman”), in the Watkins Theater.  The event will begin with a reception at 5:30 p.m. [Thursday, Jan. 26] followed by a screening of the film and a question-and-answer session led by Watkins art history professor Tom Williams.

Two of Almada’s previous films also will be shown this week: El General—which earned the 2009 Sundance documentary directing award – at 6 p.m. Monday [Jan. 23] in the Watkins Theater, and Al Otro Lado (“To The Other Side”) at  6 p.m. Wednesday [Jan. 25] in Room 804.

Almada’s films focus on the day-to-day lives of ordinary people in Mexico while making larger statements about the country. El Velador, for example, follows the nocturnal wanderings of a man who keeps watch over mausoleums belonging to drug lords.

Watkins College is at 2298 Rosa L. Parks Blvd. Details:[masked] or
