The U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico will host the premiere of a documentary called “Taming New Mexico,” a 56-minute film (narrated by Sam Donaldson) that, according to one announcement, “tells the story of now New Mexico transitioned from the Spanish-Mexican rule of law to the American legal system that New Mexico has today.” Here is the trailer.
This event (which is “black-tie-optional”) will occur on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. at the Pete V. Domenici United States Courthouse in Albuquerque. Please RSVP by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As an aficionado of New Mexico history, it pains me that I will be out of state on May 10! But fortunately for me (and maybe for you), the film will be shown on KNME, Channel 5.1 on Thursday, May 18 at 7:00 p.m.
