Library to show short but sweet films

-A A +A
By Kelly Dolejsi

“The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder,” Alfred Hitchcock once said.

Well then, sprinters rejoice: Next up in the library’s Free Film Series is a selection of short films, none more than 30 minutes long.

After the success of last year’s program of short films by New Mexico filmmakers, which drew upwards of 70 moviegoers to the library’s illustrious second floor, organizers of the Free Film Series have decided to try it again. For Thursday’s screening, Thad Hahn and Phil Kilgour have chosen a collection even more diverse, engaging and hilarious than its predecessor.

The evening begins with a 10-minute documentary by high-school junior Lizzie Wasilewska of Los Alamos. “Lewis Hine: Focusing the American Conscience” discusses egregious labor practices in America around the turn of the 20th century. It won the 2009 New Mexico National History Day state-wide competition and was New Mexico’s entry for the 2009 Kenneth E. Behring National History Day screening at the University of Maryland.
