Argentina, USA, Spain | 2017 | 102 min | Drama | Not Rated

NADIE NOS MIRA is a film about the struggle of self-imposed exile; how the pleasures of anonymity and freedom contrast with the pain of loneliness and loss that shapes the immigrant experience. Nico, mid 30's, is a young Argentine actor fighting to build a career in the US, without assistance or connections. Nico has left a promising acting career in Argentina, after a tumultuous break-up with his mentor/producer. He lands in New York, lured into believing that his talent will help him find success "on his own" and prove his self-worth. But that's not what he finds. Too blonde to play latino, his accent too strong to play anything else, Nico gets stuck between identities: that of the successful South American actor, and temporary immigrant needing to juggle odd jobs, in search of the ever-elusive acting part that will provide an adjustment of status. When Andrea, his beautiful Argentinean ex-roommate and confidante, asks him to take care of her baby Theo; Nico becomes his male nanny ("manny") and doesn't suspect how deeply this new bond will affect him.

NOBODY'S WATCHING examines an immigrant experience that doesn't often land on the screen; the bittersweet struggle of choosing to make a new land your own, and the realization that actual success lies in the journey of self- discovery and the unexpected gains that "failure" can provide.

2017 Tribeca Film Festival:
Won, Jury Award Best Actor in an International Narrative Feature (Guillermo Pfening) for “A performance of extraordinary vulnerability”

VILLAGE VOICE CRITICS' PICK: “Solomonoff…exhibits a scrupulous control of her material and milieu that’s all too rare in episodic, humanistic indie-movie life studies. There’s nothing fussy about any shot of Nobody’s Watching, but there’s also no shot wasted, and no shot that doesn’t communicate something vital about the city or her protagonist.”- Alan Scherstuhl, The Village Voice| full review

“This compelling tale of this thirty-something-year-old man going into self-exile like this to find himself is quite a tour-de-force performance from the immensely talented Pfening, who picked up Best Actor in an International Feature at Tribeca for his trouble.” – Roger Walker-Dack, | full review

“It was intriguing to follow Julia Solomonoff’s vision through the movie, the way she saw a male protagonist character that eventually you will find as someone who tries hard to face the challenges of life all by himself…” – Ulkar Alakbarova, MOVIEMOVESME.COM | full review

“Nobody’s Watching in a multitude of ways, including as a reflection on the forms of self-deception we hide behind when we lack the courage to face up to conflict.” – Alfonso Rivera, | full review

“Pfening delivers a masterful, low-key performance that subtly unpacks the psychology of how immigration can turn lives into lies.” - Jonathan Holland, Hollywood Reporter | full review
