‘Bless Me, Ultima’ to be screened in NM after all

SANTA FE — A movie based on Rudolfo Anaya’s iconic New Mexico-based novel “Bless Me, Ultima” will be screened in the state after all.
The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/PYalrp) that the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival has scheduled a screening of the film Oct. 17 to kick off the film festival.
The move comes after producers of the film announced it was to premiere in El Paso, Texas at the historic Plaza Theatre, although the novel is set in the small town of Guadalupe, N.M., during World War II, and the film was entirely shot in New Mexico.
The novel follows 6-year-old Antonio Marez, and a curandera named Ultima.
“Bless Me, Ultima” has been credited with sparking the Mexican-American literature movement. It has been banned in some Arizona schools.
