Twin sisters - a prim, ambitious magazine
editor (Carice van Houten, HBO's "Game of
Thrones") and a warm, family-oriented housewife
(real-life sibling Jelka van Houten) - travel to
the American Southwest in search of the biological
mother they've never met (Academy Award winner
Holly Hunter). Finding her the worse for wear and
living out of a battered RV, they drive
their mother cross-state to a rehab center on a
journey that will redefine the meaning of "family"
for all of them. With beautiful
cinematography, shot on location in the
breathtaking desert landscapes of New Mexico,
JACKIE is a fresh and heartwarming take on the
classic American road movie.
On Sunday, May 19th, our Filmmakers
Experience continues with a panel
discussion by Native American Filmmakers.
Find out the perspective of five
local filmmakers on filmmaking in New Mexico.
Panel is from 11am to 1pm at the Center for
Contemporary Arts. Details
