We are thrilled to announce the release of our short film, I AM, featuring original poems and spoken word performances by eight compelling young artists from Santa Fe, Taos, and Albuquerque: 2020 Santa Fe Youth Poet Laureate Artemisio Romero y Carver, Akyra Cordova, Yovanna Estrada, JezuDePaz, Llamas, Blanca Ortiz, Teresa Romero, and Arwen Scarlata.
A free premiere of the film will take place at Teatro Paraguas (3205 Calle Marie) on Friday, August 13th at 7:00pm. A reception with food and drink will follow the premiere. The event will be general admission and the theater will be open at 6:30pm.
The poems, created around the theme of hope, were workshopped under the mentorship of Israel Francisco Haros Lopez, co-founder and Art Director at Alas De Agua Art Collective, and 2021 recipient of the Mayor's Award for Excellence in the Arts. Performances were filmed in outdoor locations throughout Santa Fe including Fort Marcy Park, Cross of the Martyrs, and San Ysidro Crossing. The film, co-produced by Ironweed Artistic Director Scott Harrison and Kate Kita, is directed by Matt Sanford in collaboration with filmmaker and cinematographer Freedom Hopkins.
This project is supported in part by an award from New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts.
