*Cuban Filmmaker Gloria Rolando Tours the Bay Area
November 2-8

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 history.
