Memories of a Penitent Heart

 

To support MEMORIES OF A PENITENT HEART, a film combining a wealth of home video and written letters with artfully shot contemporary interviews and vérité footage that cracks open a Pandora’s box of unresolved family drama. In 1987, the artist's uncle Miguel repented of his homosexuality as he lay dying of AIDS in a hospital. He left behind a grieving lover, a devout Catholic mother, and a lot of troubling rumors. A generation later, the artist searches for Miguel’s partner in an effort to understand the circumstances behind Miguel’s deathbed decision.
