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.
