In the film Reembarque/Reshipment, Ms. Rolando expertly uses the voices of prominent historians combined with the memories of Haitians and their descendants in Cuba, to address the Haitian experience and its influences on Cuban cultural history in the 20th century.

Vivid landscapes compliment what has become her signature style of cinematography, where Ms. Rolando offers audiences the chance to understand the dynamics of cross national economic policies and the shared social history of post colonial Caribbean nations.

About the Director

Executive Producer, Director and founding member of the film collective, Imágenes del Caribe, Gloria Rolando is very much interested in the human condition. Following in the pathway led by filmmaker Sara Gomez, Afro-Cuban filmmaker Gloria Rolando has worked with the Cuban National Film Institute throughout her professional career. 

Reembarque/Reshipment:  is Gloria Rolando’s twelfth film, 58 minutes in length, it is directed in Spanish with English subtitles. Reembarque is also available in Spanish with French subtitles.  Ms. Rolando’s films include My Footsteps in Baragua; Oggun: An External Presence; Eyes of the Rainbow and 1912, Breaking the Silence. Ms. Rolando’s practice exemplifies the independent filmmaking spirit: “None of my projects has had a budget: they begin with a borrowed camera, or a little money to rent equipment, but always with a clear idea of the story I want to tell.” With courage, wisdom and precise attention to details, Ms. Rolando’s films explore the universal themes of migration, family, and community, to connect, acknowledge and celebrate the African Diaspora experience in the Americas.
