|Gloria Rolando had a succesful US tour in the fall of '99. She
showed Eyes of the Rainbow (on Assata Shakur), My Footsteps in Baragua, Oggun: An Eternal
Presence, and her new short documentary film, El Alacrán
(The Scorpion) that deals with the comparsas, the dance and music of Cuba's carnaval . She
also had a presentation on a work in progress, filmed but not yet edited, that concerns
the 1912 massacre of the Independents of Color, Cuba's first and only black political
party at the turn of the century. She had a video with some stills from this film,
the first time this event has been treated on screen, as knowledge of it was repressed for
so long. See synopsis and new photos on this last
film, "Searching in My Dreams" (renamed Roots of my Heart).
Shakur posters now available.]
