The Magic Valley Arts Council in partnership with The Times-News and Independent Television Service (ITVS) announces the Community Cinema Free Film Screening of Las Marthas by Cristina Ibarra at 7 pm on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 in the Sligar Auditorium of the Twin Falls Center for the Arts, 195 River Vista Place, Twin Falls. The film is free and open to the public. Community Cinema is a national documentary screening series that is a groundbreaking public education and civic engagement initiative featuring monthly screenings of documentary films from the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens. The annual colonial-inspired Martha Washington Society debutante ball in Laredo, Texas, Las Marthas, dating from the aftermath of the U.S.-Mexican War, was originally shaped by the tensions following the influx of Anglo migrants to the newly American state of Texas. The documentary Las Marthas follows two Mexican American girls carrying this gilded tradition on their shoulders as new tensions resonate in a time of economic uncertainty and growing political tensions continue over immigration.
