*Online Premiere* The young daughter of Rahul, an Indian immigrant living in Mexico City, follows her dad to an acting audition. Shalini Adnani directs “Somebody’s Daughter,” an affecting portrait of vulnerability and embarrassment in a foreign land. He’s not an actor but he’s desperate for work, and he’s been told he may fit as an “exotic” extra in a potato chip commercial. Clearly not comfortable with performing, especially when asked by the casting director to ham it up and act foolishly, Rahul struggles through the encounter, and it’s even more humiliating because his daughter is watching the whole thing, forced to see her father in a new light. No doubt influenced by Adnani’s own upbringing — she grew up in Santiago, Chile to Indian parents (read more here) — the film gets great performances and captures a vivid sense of unbelonging and humility.
