Join us every first Thursday of the month from Memorial Day to Labor Day for a monthly film screening curated by Standard Fantastic Pictures’ (SFP) Omar Lopex. The screening will include a feature film inspired by our special exhibition Celia Álvarez Muñoz: Breaking the Binding and local SFP shorts. Like Álvarez Muñoz, Standard Fantastic Pictures examines the nature of the border and embraces an ‘artivist’ (art + activist) perspective in artmaking.

The double feature will include feature film The Border (1982) by Tony Richardson and local projects from the Inaugural Standard Fantastic Pictures Transborder Film Fellowship: Las Señales Ya No Están en el Cielo (2023) by Jafet Arzate and Ella Se Queda (2023) by Marinthia Gutierrez.

The Standard Fantastic Transborder Film Fellowship, sponsored by Kodak and FotoKem, provides youth in the US/MX transborder region with resources & mentorship to produce 16mm narrative films. The films by Inaugural Fellows Gutierrez and Arzate are stories inspired by our border region’s unique culture.
