Gloria Rolando is a pioneering Afro-Cuban filmmaker, whose career spans over 35 years at ICAIC, the Cuban National Film Institute. Gloria’s extensive filmography, though not described as ethnographic, integrates themes of cultural memory, history, identity, mythology and storytelling within the context of African Diasporan cultures in the Americas. Her preoccupation with these themes make known the persistence of Africa in the cultural memory of Cuba, the Caribbean, and across the diaspora. These stories connect people across many boundaries.
