Love In The Valley

Doc Shorts |  17m

United States

For more than 25 years, indigenous Albuquerque artist Lonnie Anderson has been performing inspirational acts of art and creativity on Valentine’s Day for his wife, Anne. Abandoned at a Wyoming orphanage as a child, Anderson found his way back to New Mexico. The South Valley of Albuquerque, an area with a reputation for violent crime, has been the backdrop for most of Anderson’s art.

“Love in the Valley” explores not only Anderson’s love for Anne but also his deep love for the South Valley where she was born and where the two raise their two daughters today. This is a story about abandonment, belonging, and transcending stereotypes through the power of love.
