Join us for a screening of "Guillermina," and a discussion with the filmmaker Aida Esther Bueno-Sarduy.

Guillermina. Aida Esther Bueno-Sarduy, Cuba-Spain. 2019. 15 min.

Based on a true story, "Guillermina" is a film that reconstructs the memories of the trace left in a 9-year-old child, the son of a well-to-do family in Havana in the 1940s, by his wet-nurse, a black woman named Guillermina.

Introduced by Miguel Rojas-Sotelo, Director North Carolina Latin American Film Festival. This event is sponsored by the John Hope Franklin Center, the Duke University Center for International and Global Studies, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and the North Carolina Latin American Film Festival.
