 Childhood friends Patricia and Heidi grew up in Cuba, where they both went to the film academy. Independently of each other, they fled the malaise and censorship of their homeland. Heidi ended up in Switzerland, Patricia in Spain. They had no contact for years. Now both 40, they seek a way to approach each other again, choosing the medium that suits them best: video letters. Both have continued to film their lives, even though it seemed unlikely that they would ever work in film again. In their frank audiovisual communication, the two migrants recount all the roundabout routes they have taken in their lives: Patricia’s years selling mojitos, Heidi’s search for work and connection with society in Geneva, and the struggle with alienation and nostalgia for a country that has undergone profound transformations. The result of the letters, ingeniously edited into a chronological yet freewheeling whole, is a sensitive, two-sided account of uprootedness, motherhood, love of film, friendship and freedom.

The film will be presented by Dr. Zaira Zarza. Stay after the screening for a conversation about the film and the topic of migration in Hispanic cinema with Drs. Susan Lord (Queen’ s U), Carolina Rocha (Southern Illinois University Edwardsville) and Zaira Zarza (U of Montreal).

 The film is part of the Journeys and Migrations: a Colloquium on Contemporary Hispanic Cinema. Check out www.hispfilmvic.ca for more details about this event.
