Fátima Patterson, Race, Gender and Theater | Trailer

Fátima Patterson, Race, Gender and Theater

Fátima Patterson, Race, Gender and Theater (Cuba 2019), with English subtitles. Direction and production by Juanamaría Cordones-Cook. Presentation of the personal and artistic journey of Fátima de la Caridad Patterson Patterson (Santiago de Cuba 1951), storyteller, actress, theatre director, and playwright, who has been distinguished with the Premio Nacional de Teatro 2017, the highest theatre award in Cuba. Founder of the Macubá theater group in Santiago de Cuba, Patterson’s popular theatre combats disremembering. She addresses issues of race, gender, and popular religion, through theatre and oral history, a genre she masterly practices and incorporates in her artistic work. In a combination of performances, rhythms, and dances, this documentary presents the origin and development of this charismatic artist who with a strong sense of belonging brings to her creations her personal experience intertwined with traditions and components of her ancestral African heritage. The film is enriched by comments of leading Cuban intellectuals, Alberto Lescay Merencio, Enrique Bonne, Vivian Martínez Tabares, Georgina Herrera, Orlando Vergés, and Marino Wilson Jay, complemented by images of Santiago de Cuba with music by José Aquiles Virelles Rodríguez and the Conga de los Hoyos.
