Atlanta GA: AARL – Auburn Avenue Research Library, 101 Auburn Avenue, 30303

5:00 pm Saturday September 10, 2016.

“Dialogue con mi Abuela / Conversation with my Abuela” the latest production from Cuban independent film director Gloria Rolando and Imagenes del Caribe was screened for the Atlanta community.

A beautiful and thought provoking homage to Grandmothers and grandmother energy, the film was very well received by the engaged and well dressed audience.

We were all excited to see the newest independent film from Havana Cuba on the silver screen, in the recently constructed auditorium at the AARL. The atmosphere was low key and delightful.

Centered around a 1993 cassette recorded conversation between Gloria Rolando and her Grandmother, Sra. Inocencia Armas y Abreu. Addressing the complexity of the human condition, the film vis a vis their conversation, explores the significance of class, ethnicity, complexion, social stratification, African descendent representation in public spaces, spiritual customs and historic reflections about politics in early 20th century Cuba.

Afterward the audience enjoyed an excellent conversation with Gloria. It was a very enlightening experience. Really glad that she could be in Atlanta again. More importantly this project illustrates the importance of documenting and maintaining family archives, history and customs.

Next stops are: Minneapolis, New Orleans, UC Irvine, UNC Chapel Hill.

JULY 20, 2013, 6:30 pm

Atlanta GA 

Dear Friends,

Best greetings and may this communique arrive with good vibrations. Thank the Universe we are doing well in this neck of the woods. Good news is coming out of Cuba since our friend Gloria Rolando’s last trip to the U.S.  

Dance

As you know, in early April the Carter family, Beyonce and JayZ, had the chance to visit Cuba for the first time, as part of the celebration of their fifth wedding anniversary. No doubt to the chagrin of many, especially based on the photographs showing the local guides accompanying the group, their trip was an educational and informative excursion. Their tour highlighted multiple aspects of Cuban society with special emphasis on medical advancements, art, culture and the presence of eclectic architectural resources. Like many of us who have visited the Island recently, the Carters seemed to thoroughly appreciate the opportunity to spent time in Cuba. 

In May the cultural powerhouse Casa de las Americas hosted, Coloquio Internacional La Diversidad Cultural en La Caribe. The conference was a week long series of events, relevant to the Caribbean experience.

DIGITAL CAMERA

On Wednesday night May 22, 2013 at 7:30 in the Sala Che Guevara, the programming included a panel discussion with filmmaker Gloria Rolando, Eduardo Torres Cuevas (Presidente de la Academia de la Historia de Cuba), facilitated by Yolanda Wood. The focus was on the significance of African influences in Cuban history. The discussion and a musical prelude ushered the premiere screening of, “1912: Voces para un Silencio”, Capitulo 3, to the large Havana audience. 

DIGITAL CAMERA

As the director of the Herstory Independent Film Festival, it was a pleasure to have had many chances to see screenings when Gloria brought the film to Atlanta. Yet seeing the Spanish version of the film in Cuba, was a wonderful chance to witness and experience the Havana audience responses, as they thoroughly appreciated the opportunity to  see the film.  

052213190315

Since the premiere of the latest chapter of “1912: Breaking the Silence” screening in May, a lot of positive press and insightful dialogue has been initiated. The release of “1912: Voces para un Silencio” has provided a gift for the community to reintroduce, learn and discuss the significance of the Independent Party of Color in Cuban, American and Atlantic World history.

Following along with the same good vibrations, We have planned a great itinerary for December 2013! What we have organized specifically is a comfortable, fun and informative tour of Cuba, which has been positively influenced by our previous trips. Past experiences traveling to the Island have taught us that all tours are not created equally. So with this awareness in mind, we are pleased that the package and arrangements, will provide a enlightening and fulfilling experience for both the first time and the return visitor alike. 

LaCabaña

This excursion includes time spent in Havana, Gold Star Pass to the Havana Jazz Festival, Deluxe hotel accommodations, Air conditioned luxury motor coach transportation to Las Terrazas, Viñales, Cienfuegos, Trinidad de Cuba and Santa Clara, from December 11 – 23, 2013.  Bonus time has been planned with Gloria Rolando as a field guide. In addition to learning about current Imagenes del Caribe film projects, we will enjoy the benefits of special arrangements and cultural exposure have been designed by the renowned Afro Cuban filmmaker. Complimenting the above outline are daily visits to cultural venues of interest and the galleries of Choco, Fuster and other exciting Cuban artisans and musicians!

Atlanta, GA, 4/10/13, 8:54 pm.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for supporting the Herstory Independent Film Festival and the U.S. premiere of the new Gloria Rolando film, “1912: Voces para un Silencio/ 1912: Breaking the Silence” The Trilogy, here in Atlanta, Georgia. 

TeamPhoto.AARL

As you can imagine, we are extremely proud to have had the opportunity to host Ms. Rolando and to produce the screening of all three chapters of “1912” for the Atlanta audiences at Auburn Avenue Research Library, Spelman College and the Southwest Arts Center. The final event for the Herstory Independent Film Festival series was a “Off the Grid Retreat” on Sapelo Island. Power outages, no signals, emails, telephones, televisions, nada…  Peace and quiet…Absolutely splendid. Hands down the best part of course was spending time with the Saltwater Geechee Sapelo Island historian, Ms. Cornelia Bailey.  She even gave Gloria a much appreciated surprise!

We also enjoyed Gloria’s birthday celebration offshore on Sapelo Island, with delicious food, good company, peace and rest. That is right, we had a very good time. Thank Goddess for the absence of a good signal!

Since Sunday Ms. Rolando has been enjoying friends and fellowship in Northern Florida, continuing her tradition of engaging young people in meaningful conversation.  Recently she had the opportunity to converse with with students at Bethune Cookman College, where the conversation centered the Hollywood representation of African descended characters. The recently released Django and Lincoln were both enlightening topics of discussion.

Ms. Rolando has been enjoying the conversations and the audiences have been appreciating Gloria.  Her next stop is Stanford University on the West Coast, to participate in the program, “Visualizing the Caribbean”
