Gloria Rolando 2014 US Visit
Filmmaker Gloria Rolando is currently on a US visit, her remaining states as of 10/22 include North Carolina, Maryland/DC, Pennsylvania, California, Georgia, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, and New York. The visit is based on an invitation to give the US premier of her film "Reembarque" / "Reshipment" at the "WITH/OUT - ¿BORDERS?" Conference at Kalamazoo College, Sep 25 to 28th, organized by Lisa Brock. She will be showing her latest films, 1912, Breaking the Silence, Chapter 3, on the Massacre of 1912, and "Reembarque" / "Reshipment" on Haitians immigrants in Cuba who were sent back in the beginning of the last century when the sugar market crashed and they were unwanted. The 3rd chapter of 1912, Breaking the Silence premiered in Havana in May of 2013 and received much critical aclaim. Reshipment premiered in Havana September 10, 2014 and in the US on September 28, 2014. The three chapters of 1912 caused her to receive the Caracol Prize for directorship from UNEAC in October of 2013.
Gloria sends out an appeal to help defray the costs of repairing the house of Pedro Ivonnet's granddaughter, Ivanoa Ivonnet, which was damaged by Hurricane Sandy. Pedro Ivonnet was a founder of the Independent Party of Color, which was destroyed in the 1912 Massacre.

Havana-based Afro-Cuban filmmaker Gloria Rolando will present her newest
documentary REEMBARQUE (59 minutes, in Spanish, Haitian Creole and French with
English subtitles) during her November Bay Area visit The peoples of African
ancestry in Cuba have a complex history. During the early part of the 20th
century and before the Cuban Revolution, Haitian migrant agricultural workers
faced hardships and discrimination while toiling in Cuba. Many were forcibly
deported when they were no longer needed. However they left behind their rich
spiritual practices, dynamic music and dance, as well as their history of
resistance. The voices of prominent historians join the memories of Haitians and
their descendants in Cuba to understand a forgotten chapter in Caribbean
