An Argentine actor’s failure to establish himself in New York City mirrors the struggle of many immigrants who stumble in their new setting.
Nico (Guillermo Pfening) is a famous actor in Buenos Aires, but a strained relationship causes him to move to New York City for a fresh start. His plans to reinvent himself as an actor in America don’t go as intended because his film project stalls, and Nico struggles to find any other acting roles, taking up whatever job he can find. He even resorts to stealing and lies to friends and family. His plight mirrors that of many other immigrants who fail to grab a foothold in their new surroundings.
Nico's life starts to unravel when his Argentine past catches up with him. NOBODY’S WATCHING is the latest film from award-winning director Julia Solomonoff and features a memorable performance from Guillermo Pfening, a performance that won him the Best Actor at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival in the International Narrative Feature category.
