D: Cecilia Aldarondo | USA/Puerto Rico | 77 min | SOUTHEAST REGION PREMIERE


Originating from filmmaker Cecilia Aldarondo’s suspicion that there was something ugly lurking in her family’s past, Memories of a Penitent Heart charts her personal excavation of the buried family conflict around her uncle Miguel’s death, and her search for Miguel’s partner Robert a generation later. Dealing with the mistakes of the past and the second chances of the present, Memories of a Penitent Heart is a cautionary tale about the unresolved conflicts wrought by AIDS, and a nuanced exploration of how faith is used and abused in times of crisis.
