“Nobody’s Watching” is an immigration story not about acquiring a green card, but about the confrontation of self and truth. The protagonist, Nico, overstays his visa, which happens to 40% of undocumented immigrants in the United States. In his struggle, Nico must confront the true reasons for leaving home and reclaiming his identity through self-discovery and self-worth. That Nico happens to be an actor — and a struggling one at that — only adds to his ability to disappear into his own lies.

Solomonoff is a lauded name in Latin American cinema, and her films have gone on to premiere at film festivals such as Toronto, Sundance, San Sebastian, Berlinale, and New Directors/New Films. Her past films include “Hermanas” (2005), “The Last Summer of la Boyita” (2009) that was co-produced by Pedro Almodovar. She also does not limit herself to only narrative features,  she has also directed a documentary series “Paraná,” “Biography of a River,” “Chin Chon Fan,” and “The Suitor.”
