A filmmaker investigates the 1983 disappearance of her father—inventor, writer, and martial artist Miguel Hidalgo—in the Venezuelan Amazon. As she returns to the site of his vanishing decades later, she uncovers dark secrets about the man she always idolized and after whom she molded her identity, forcing her to come to terms with a very different person from the father she remembers and to rethink her own life and who she now wants to become.
Alexandra Hidalgo, director, producer, and writer of The Weeping Season
Cristina Carrasco, editor and writer of The Weeping Season
