    This introduction to the special issue on Uruguayan cinema outlines the unifying thematic (of exploring contemporary Uruguayan cinemas) and the manner of explo- ration (from outside the country looking in, and, from inside looking out – a ‘herme- neutic circle’). It also situates the issue with respect to the field of scholarly work on Uruguayan cinema (exploring reasons behind the relative lack of scholarly interest in Uruguayan filmmaking), and Latin American cinema more broadly, before briefly discussing the articles in turn.
