Memories of a Penitent Heart

SATURDAY DECEMBER 2, 2017

10:45 AM –  Auto-Ethnography/Memory

The intimate lens of the film refracts on a wider cultural context: the AIDS crisis of the 1980s and 1990s, and in particular, how families treat their LGBT members in a Latin American cultural and religious context.
