About Milagro at Los Luceros
A collaboration between Robert Redford and Governor Bill Richardson
In 2009, the formal collaboration of "Milagro at Los Luceros" in Alcalde, New Mexico, was formed. The thematic focus of this program is to nurture under-represented cultural voices such as Native American, Hispanic and African American filmmakers; create cultural preservation through storytelling and environmental sustainability through work study, community involvement and labor of equity. To date, the program has served the New Mexico community through multiple filmmaking workshops in acting, screenwriting and through filmmaker screening and presentations. See: http://nmfilm.com/locals/downloads/milagroAtLosLuceros.pdf for more information. [Examples of programs since 2009 have included bi-monthly writing workshops which have taken place as a series over the past nine months and will continue through2011; the annual Sundance Film Institute's Directors' Lab for Native Americans conducted in Mescalero Apache; public panels and forums featuring prominent Native American filmmakers around the state and a series of professional acting and casting workshops with Native Americans around the state, including Roswell, Las Cruces, Grants, Espanola and Albuquerque.]
