Resumo

Argentine-born Federico Hidalgo, his Mexican-born wife Paulina Robles and many collaborators including his former students and fellow professors at Concordia University have made four fiction feature films together over the last 10 years. Only the first of these, Un amore silencio/A Silent Love (2004) has gained international exhibition and recognition. This is unfortunate because Hidalgo’s films present a highly original and stylistically creative approach to the problems faced by Latin American immigrants and visitors to Canada/Québec, including their spatial orientation.
