A Place for Siegmar is a personal insight in the relationship of an immigrant father and son recently arrived in Hackney.

In 2002, due to the economic and social crisis in Argentina, along with his filmmaker son Diego, Siegmar was forced to make the return journey to Europe and seek refuge with his wife in London’s East End.
