Abstract: Global markets like the festival circuit affect the ways in which small cinemas represent the nation. In the 2000s, new Uruguayan cinema has produced several fi lms which background their "Uruguayanness" to broaden international appeal. In contrast to existing debates surrounding auto-ethnography, this is a process of auto-erasure through which Uruguay "disappears." This aesthetic strategy refl ects the complex politics surrounding production and reception, which must be negotiated by fi lmmakers in small nations who are reaching out to global markets.
