10/13Landfall Documentary Screening And Q&A With Director Cecilia Aldarondo And Associate Producer Lale Namerrow Pastor
Documentary Screening and Q&A with Director Cecilia Aldarondo and Collaborator/Associate Producer Lale Namerrow Pastor.
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. While the devastation of María attracted a great deal
of media coverage, the world has paid far less attention to the storm that preceded it: a 72-billion-dollar debt crisis crippling Puerto Rico well before the winds and waters hit. LANDFALL examines the kinship of these two storms—one environmental, the other economic—juxtaposing competing utopian visions of recovery. Featuring intimate
encounters with Puerto Ricans as well as the newcomers flooding the island, LANDFALL reflects on a question of contemporary global relevance: when the world
falls apart, who do we become?Contact Information: Journalism@uconn.edu More

10/27Picturing the Pandemic Exhibition Opening Reception
Picturing the Pandemic Exhibition Opening ReceptionThursday, October 27th, 202205:00 PM - 07:00 PMOtherHartford Public Library
Join us to celebrate how pandemic picture-making can spark new ways of claiming our voices, learning from others, and creating meaningful change in the world.
This innovative exhibition—a partnership between the Pandemic Journaling Project (PJP) and Seeing Truth: Art, Science, Museums, and Making Knowledge—will feature images created by people around the globe in telling their pandemic stories. At once devastating, joyful, funny, and tragic, the exhibition asks: What does a pandemic look like? What has COVID-19 helped us, or made us, see? How has it changed our sense of what counts as true—or whose truth counts?
