Your Support is Greatly Appreciated!

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.

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”
