What connection is there between Mexico and Nordic Cinema? And what thrills may come to a couple who seek comfort in a Brazilian cabin in the woods, as depicted in the trailer for Isolados?

Read onward for more information provided by our correspondents in Latin America. We are returning to a bi-weekly schedule of publication, so check back on Tuesday, September 30, for our next edition.
