Landfall Documentary Discussion with Director Cecilia Aldarando
From Katie Gentilello
Join us for a virtual screening and Q&A with director Cecilia Aldarondo and associate producer Lale Namerrow Pastor of the documentary Landfall (2020). Through shard-like glimpses of everyday life in post-Hurricane María Puerto Rico, LANDFALL is a cautionary tale for our times. Set against the backdrop of protests that toppled the US colony’s governor in 2019, the film offers a prismatic portrait of collective trauma and resistance.
