This film was screened as a part of the 2014 Cine Las Americas International Film Festival (CLAIFF17)


Isabel, Content Chief of the poorly rated Culture Channel, trusts that Sofia, her daughter, will save her career by being the new image of the Venezuelan youth. However, Sofia, who has just returned from Spain where she studied journalism, has her own plans: she declares that she has found her true identity abroad, claiming that she is really Argentinean and she plans to travel south in order to become repatriated. That is the beginning of this unique and funny family “war of independence” which puts the love between mother and daughter to the test. NENA, SALÚDAME AL DIEGO has just recently begun a world wide festival tour, including screenings at the Málaga Film Festival and Women’s International Film and Art Festival.
