Wednesday, May 8, 2019 @ 6:45 pm
1508 SW 8th Street, Miami, FL 33135 United States
Nadie nos mira / Nobody’s Watching 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 immigrant experience. Nico, mid 30s, is a young Argentine actor fighting to build a career in the US, without assistance, or connections, never too far from heart-breaking failure, but often blinded by the mirage of immediate success.
Followed by a discussion from writer and director Julia Solomonoff in coversation with Margaret Cardillo. Free and open to the public

Her short films received awards from DGA, FIPRESCI and a regional Academy Award Nomination. Her films are part of MoMA’s permanent collection and were featured in a Lincoln Center retrospective.
