JARUSA’S DAY

US Premiere

The movie aims at dealing, in a delicate way, with the matter of the loneliness, present in several buildings occupied by widow or single women who lived their lives, their love and their dreams in the neighbourhood of Bela Vista (São Paulo) Directed by Viviane Ferreira, Brazil, 2013, Drama, 20 min, Brazilian-Portuguese with English subtitles.

DIALOG WITH MY GRANDMOTHER

NY Premiere

Dialogue with my grandmother is inspired by the life of Gloria Rolando’s grandmother, Inocencia Armas Abreu and draws on an interview she conducted with her in 1993. Mixing documentary and fiction, this film serves as a celebration of not only her grandmother’s legacy but also presents her testimony as a tribute to the larger contexts of black Cubans and black Cuban women in particular. Directed by Gloria Rolando, Cuba, 2015, Documentary, 40 min, Spanish with English subtitles.


INVISIBLE ROOTS: AFRO-MEXICANS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Mexico is home to many African-descended peoples who have now immigrated to Southern California. Through intimate portraits, members of three Afro-Mexican families discuss what it means to be Mexican with African roots, roots that are often forgotten, denied and frequently despised. Directed by Tiffany Walton, USA, 2015, Short Documentary, 21 min, English.
