“1912 Breaking the Silence” Tonight!

THE HERSTORY INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL, ATLANTA, GA,  

Dear Friends,

We are in the second and final weekend of the Herstory Independent Film Festival, screening marathon of the the ground breaking new film by Gloria Rolando and Imagenes del Caribe, “1912: Voces para un Silencio/1912: Breaking the Silence.”  We have been doing our best to expose Ms. Rolando to as many audiences as possible all around Atlanta, and of course, to keep her warm. Oh our dear Mother Earth is showing us all what she is made of…lol! That’s right, it’s Herstory.  

Yet we have sunshine and the Audience Reactions have been…Well…the Atlanta audiences have been loving it! The film, the interviews, conversations, lectures all of it, the entire program.  View an interview on Youtube and Read what audiences have been saying.

“This afternoon while at work I was surfing the web and came across the Herstory Indie Film Fest, ‘1912: Voces para un Silencio/ 1912: Breaking the Silence’ and the Cinnamon Traveler website. I saw the Eventbrite link and just bought a ticket, it’s Wednesday night, why not!”  — Black Box Theater, Southwest Arts Center, Wednesday, 3/27/13.

“Just heard an interview on Atlanta’s WRFG station on Sista Rah’s program with Sista Gloria Rolando and went to the website to buy tickets for this Saturday 3/30/13 screening of “1912” at Southwest Arts Center.”  –WRFG radio audience 3/27/13.

“I never listen to WRFG, but I heard the Radio Diaspora interview on Saturday and made sure that I came to see Chapter 3.” — Cosby Auditorium, Spelman College, Monday, 3/25/13.

“Yes we drove from Macon, GA. We wanted to make sure that we support what you are doing.” — Cosby Auditorium, Spelman College, Monday, 3/25/13. 

“Not to miss these historical films, I was in a class…the images and information were so rich. Check the site www.cinnamontraveler.com for more details.” –Facebook, Sunday, 3/24/13.

“She is so down to earth.”  

“I thought that there would be a translator, but was it was not necessary, her English is great!” 

“Love the series, it’s Black, it’s woman, it’s international.” — Auburn Avenue Research Library, Saturday, 3/23/13. 

And over the course of the week several people have mentioned and asked, “Love the music. Is there a film score for sale?”

Well, you know the deal, this has been a good time, we have been blessed with successful programming and we certainly look forward to seeing you in the audience. For additional information contact Grace Lynis at 404.915.6701 or hiff@cinnamontraveler.org.

Do you know Maceo? You know it…sure you do.

Atlanta, GA, Sunday night , 3/3/13

Last week was such a pivotal week for us. The Herstory Independent Film Festival begins in less than three weeks. “1912:Voces para un Silencio/1912:Breaking the Silence” is coming to ATLANTA! Check out the movie  trailer.

The main events are scheduled, final details are confirmed, and we have met with all of the committees that are crucial to the plan, yes less than three weeks, time is the taskmaster, she barrels along and continues to move at a furious pace. Keep up, Keep Up, KEEP UP!!

I just spoke with my mother and it is official that she will be coming to spend sometime in attendance on Sapelo Island, to participate in Herstory Independent Film Festival. Tomorrow is Monday and this week we will learn who will decide to join the retreat. OMG are we excited. Nearly sold out, everyone who is going is stoked about the chance to spend time at the water and the prospect of visiting Diaspora history treasures, found only on the Saltwater Geechee Island of Sapelo.  Lord Jesus, Mother of God, give thanks, great thanks…Everybody wants time for that! 

Right after I finished talking with Mommy, I kept the momentum flowing and called Gloria Rolando in Havana, to check in with her and give her a rundown of what is going on here in Atlanta. Yeah, we talked too long. But oh my goodness, with my quickly spoken english and broken-up spanish, we joyously chatted along for over thirty minutes. Talking away as if we were only one county over versus the reality of our ocean wide separation. Yet hey, it was worth every single cent and it was so much cheaper than an airline ticket. 

I tell you, she blew me away with News that she will be traveling to Los Angeles (March 6 – March 11) New York (March 12-15) as a part of a four women delegation representing Cuban women in film. I believe a Ministry of Cultural sponsored event. You know diplomacy through the arts, very nice. And so on Thursday, March 7, 2013 Ms. Rolando discusses her film “The Jazz in Us” at Brooks Institute, Ventura CA and Friday, March 8, 2013 she will be at the Egyptian Theater, in Hollywood, CA. In New York the schedule includes a visit to NYU, and more screenings, both Uptown and in the Village; all before coming to Atlanta to premiere the trilogy, “1912:Voces para un Silencio/1912:Breaking the Silence”.  Then after Atlanta and Sapelo, Ms. Rolando will travel back to the west coast to the Bay Area to visit and screen ‘1912:’ at Stanford University April 10 – 14, 2013.   

Yes!  Our idea to bring the “1912” film to Atlanta to introduce the “Scholarship Fund”  has really shaped up into an active multi city tour of the U.S.  My goodness, Public history programming has never been more exciting!!
