Free “Redes” Screening and Concert Thursday

As we previously announced, the Americas Society is holding the NY premiere screening of the lost Mexican film Redes (1937), May 4th at 7 pm. It is free to the public, but you must register, as space is limited.

The screening will include two special treats: first, the Foundation for Iberian Music’s resident Perspectives Ensemble will perform two works by Revueltas (who composed the Redes score); and second, a panel discussion with Joseph Horowitz (PostClassical Ensemble, executive director) and Angel Gil-Ordóñez (whom readers should know and love from his work directing both Perspectives Ensemble and the PostClassical Ensemble), moderated by Carlos Gutierrez of Cinema Tropical.
