  • Horse racing film gets Red Carpet treatment in N.M.

    They said it could never happen, but against odds of 50-1, Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby and shocked the nation of horse racing in 2009.
    Now a major motion picture based on that event is headed to the big screen, with Albuquerque being the backdrop for the Red Carpet gala. The World Premiere of “50 to 1” will be 6 p.m. March 19 at the Kimo Theater, 421 Central Ave.
    The cast and filmmakers are embarking on a cross-country bus tour to promote the movie. The bus will be in Santa Fe from 2-3 p.m. March 21 at the Regal Theaters, 3474 Zafarano Dr.
    Mine That Bird himself will be at the Red Carpet premiere in Albuquerque.
    The movie was filmed in several areas in New Mexico, including the Sunland Park racetrack and Santa Fe. Other locations used to film were Kentucky and California.
    “I have been looking for a great horse story for decades and I am a sucker for an underdog dog story,” said Jim Wilson, the film’s director, producer and co-writer.
    Wilson is the Oscar winning producer of “Dances with Wolves.”
    “50 to 1” is based on the cowboy trainer and owners whose equine overcame a long shot to win the 2009 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs.

  • Educational and thought-provoking

    “Kindertransport” is now playing at the Los Alamos Little Theater.   Performances are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday.

  • Cycling film to premiere March 12

    “Rising From Ashes,” the award-winning feature-length documentary about Team Rwanda, will premiere in Los Alamos, 7 p.m. March 12 at the Reel Deal Movie Theater. The event is co-sponsored by the Tuff Riders Mountain Bike Club and the Los Alamos Singletrack Association.
    “Rising From Ashes” is an independent film about the development of a national cycling team in Rwanda, a country still affected deeply by the genocide that tore the East African nation apart in 1994.
    Two worlds collide when cycling legend Jacques “Jock” Boyer moves to Rwanda in 2006 to help a group of struggling survivors of the genocide to pursue their dream of creating a national cycling team. Members of the fledgling team were children left orphaned by the genocide a decade earlier. As they set out against impossible odds, both Boyer — fighting his own past demons — and the team find new purpose as they rise from the ashes of their pasts through remarkable achievements, both big and small.
    The documentary tells a story of redemption, hope and second chances. It is not about the bike; however, the bicycle becomes a tool that has helped change a nation.
    Team Rwanda began as a cycling organization, but became so much more once organizers realized the greater needs of the athletes.

  • NYC jazz musicians to play at Fuller Lodge

    New York City Jazz musicians Roy Dunlap and Marcus Parsley will perform an evening of jazz, 7 p.m. Friday at Fuller Lodge.
    Dunlap will perform on the piano and Parsley will play the trumpet.
    There will be a short opening performance featuring a Los Alamos Acoustic Swing Trio.
    Dunlap began playing professionally at age 14. He attained a master’s degree in piano at Queens college in New York City studying with Sir Roland Hanna. Dunlap has toured throughout the United States and Europe.
    Highlights include performing at the world’s top jazz festivals and venues including the Montreaux Jazz Festival in
    Switzerland, Berlin Jazz Festival in Germany, the North Sea Jazz Festival in the Netherlands, Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy, JVC Festival in New York City, the Jacksonville Jazz festival and The Hollywood Bowl. Dunlap has worked with Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Wes Anderson, Madeline Peyroux and The Artie Shaw Orchestra, to name a few.
    He recently performed with John Mayer in a benefit concert Stand Up For Heroes. He is featured on numerous recordings as a sideman and leader of his own group. He currently lives in New York City where he teaches and performs regularly.

  • LALT commemorates WWII history

    Los Alamos Little Theatre will mark the 75th anniversary of the United Kingdom’s historic Kindertransport program with its March production of Diane Samuel’s award-winning drama of the same name. Opening Friday night, “Kindertransport” focuses on the life of one of the children rescued by England’s evacuation program for Jewish children in Germany begun on the eve of World War II.
    Before the outbreak of the war, the people of Europe were aware of the dangers to the Jewish people living within the borders of the expanding German state, but there was little desire to open borders to refugees seeking to flee the Nazi regime. Attitudes shifted rapidly after the Kristallnacht pogroms of Nov. 9-10, 1938, in which Jewish businesses and synagogues were destroyed by German storm troopers.
    In the UK, Parliament passed a bill waiving immigration requirements for unaccompanied children from the ages of infancy to 17. Members of the Movement for the Care of Children from Germany, later known as the Refugee Children’s Movement (RCM), began organizing on the ground in Germany and Austria, setting up systems for the selection and transportation of children.

  • Film noir tells of harsh life lessons

    Need a pick-me-up? Then don’t watch “Ace in the Hole” (1951, unrated).
    But if you can take it, this black-and-white classic tells a great story while it teaches one of those grim life lessons.
    Journalist Chuck Tatum (Kirk Douglas) is on the outs. He used to rake in the bucks, but hard times and personal proclivities have him stuck in small-time Albuquerque, working for an editor who wants him to, of all things, tell the truth.
    This goes against his every fiber. But he toes the line until, on his way to cover a snake hunt, he happens across a woman whose husband was just pinned deep in a mining shaft inside an ancient cliff dwelling.
    He volunteers to help.
    He helps himself to an unbeatable story. He helps the rat-wife (Jan Sterling), who runs a restaurant adjacent to the cliff dwelling, to a full cash register as the curious pull up in their recreational vehicles. He helps the sheriff put on a show worthy of re-election.
    The one person he fails to aid is the miner. Unfortunately for Leo Minosa (Richard Benedict), the longer the rescue takes, the more publicity, the more money, the more sensation his predicament generates.

  • Quintet entertain at next Brown Bag Performance

    The Los Alamos Arts Council announces the next Brown Bag Performance Series, noon at March 5 at Fuller Lodge.
    The Quintet nicknamed “The Trout” will be performing works of Franz Schubert — a piano quintet in A major, D.667: Allegro vivace, Andante, Scherzo, Tema, Finale.
    “The Trout” is called that because the fourth movement has variations sung by mezzo soprano Pauline Schneider. The unusual instrumentation for the quintet is Mary Helen Klare
 on violin, Kathy Gursky on viola, Rebecca Caron on cello and Patrick Neher on double bass and Juanita Madland on piano.
    This is the third Los Alamos “Schubertiade” since October 2012. These concerts are a good will offering to Los Alamos.
    Schneider moved to New Mexico in 1999 and she has been the executive director for Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization since 2001. She also works for Los Alamos Visiting Nurses as a Hospice Music Therapist. She sings every Sunday at First Presbyterian Church in Santa Fe in the chancel choir.
