1977 saw the release of Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Yet, eclipsed unfairly in cinemas by those behemoths in that year, was one of the finest thrillers ever made. After the success of The French Connection and The Exorcist, director William Friedkin began work on his biggest project to date. Seizing the moment, he embarked on an ambitious and lengthy shoot in the dense jungles of the Dominican Republic and like Werner Herzog with Fitzcoraldo and Francis Ford Coppola on Apocalypse Now, Friedkin battled the elements, came face-to-face with nature and emerged victorious with Sorcerer!

This is British filmmaker Andrea Arnold’s third film which is an adaptation of the Emily Bronte classic 1847 novel. Arnold’s screen play, co-written with Olivia Hetreed and winner of the best cinematography award at the Venice Film Festival 2011, is a “brilliant, visceral” version in which director Andrea Arnold and cinematographer Robbie Ryan strip the story ruthlessly down to its bare essentials: pain, anger and love”. (Peter Bradshaw The Guardian 2011)

Combining a wealth of recently discovered home movies, video, and written documents with artfully shot contemporary interviews and vérité footage, MEMORIES OF A PENITENT HEART is a documentary that cracks open a Pandora’s box of unresolved family drama. Originating from filmmaker Cecilia Aldarondo’s suspicion that there was something ugly in her family’s past, the film charts her excavation of the buried family conflict around her uncle Miguel’s death, and her search for Miguel’s partner Robert a generation later.
A story about the mistakes of the past and the second chances of the present, MEMORIES OF A PENITENT HEART is a cautionary tale about the unresolved conflicts wrought by AIDS, and a nuanced exploration of how faith is used and abused in times of crisis.
