Nadie nos mira / Nobody's Watching
by Julia Solomonoff
For an upcoming film project in New York Nico has given up everything he had – his house in Buenos Aires, a part in a successful TV series and his long-term relationship with producer Martín. Upon his arrival in the Big Apple, the project falls through, however. Nico finds himself odd-jobbing as a waiter and babysitter while sleeping on couches. Casting agents deem him too blond to play a typical Latino, his accent being too strong to allow him other parts. Alone yet hopeful, Nico is left drifting through a city full of possibilities. Slowly he comes to realise that it is not just his friends he is fooling, but also himself. Director Julia Solomonoff returns to Zurich with her third feature after attending the first ZFF edition thirteen years ago with her debut.
