Filmmaker Cecilia Aldarondo suspected that there was something ugly in her family's past. Memories of a Penitent Heart excavates a buried conflict around her uncle Miguel's death at a time when having AIDS was synonymous with sin. As she searches for Miguel's partner decades later, the film – both a love story and a tribute – is a cautionary tale of how faith is used and abused in times of crisis.
