Combining recently discovered home movies, video, and written documents, Memories of a Penitent Heart cracks open a Pandora’s box of unresolved family drama. Originating in Cecilia Aldarondo’s suspicion that there was something awry in her family’s past, the film charts her excavation of the buried conflict surrounding her uncle Miguel’s death. This cautionary tale about the unresolved conflicts wrought by AIDS is a nuanced exploration of how faith is used and abused in times of crisis. Latino Public Broadcasting Presents Showcase.
