  Description     The film  
Enigmatico is an innovative look at the lives and work of Canadian men and women artists of Italian origin. Interweaving poetry, painting, photography, music and sculpture, it explores the relationship between the immigrant experience and the creative process, broaching issues of identity and culture that go the the core of what it means to be Canadian.
