Strange Truth 2021


Cecilia Aldarondo is a documentary filmmaker from the Puerto Rican diaspora, who makes films at the intersection of poetics and politics.  Her 2020 film Landfall premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, which called the film a love letter to “an island unfairly battered by increasingly dangerous weather and corrupt bureaucracy.”  In this live digital conversation, Aldarondo will discuss Landfall and her previous film, Memories of a Penitent Heart (2016).

This conversation will take place on Zoom. The link to join the Zoom meeting will be included in your registration confirmation, which will be sent to the e-mail associated with your account.

Before the event, watch Landfall and Memories of a Penitent Heart, playing as part of the Strange Truth 2021 series. Please note that these events are ticketed separately. 

This digital event is co-presented by The Hurford Center at Haverford College, Swarthmore College, and Bryn Mawr College.
