The Hitchcock Center is pleased to be a co-sponsor of the 2020-2021 Feinberg Series, now showing Landfall Documentary through March 5. Join the online Q&A with director, Cecilia Aldarondo, tomorrow, February 24 at 7:30pm.


When the world falls apart, who do we become?

Through shard-like glimpses of everyday life, LANDFALL offers a prismatic portrait of collective trauma and resistance in post-Hurricane María Puerto Rico. Set against the backdrop of protests that toppled the US colony’s governor in 2019 and the multibillion dollar debt crisis which engulfed Puerto Rico long before María’s landfall, the film examines the kinship of these two storms—one environmental, the other economic.

Here’s the February 19 Earth Matters, by Michael Dover. He was drawn to delve into the evolution of dogs and was surprised and fascinated by what he learned. Did you know that they were the first species to be domesticated, and that they have the greatest variability of any mammal? We don’t have to go to exotic places to find intriguing stories of evolution - they may be sitting in your living room right now.

P.S. If you’re unable to access the Gazette page, wait a few days and go to the Hitchcock Center website, where you’ll find the article on the home page.
