Another film of interest to Hispanic Nashville is Under the Skin, a movie by Nashvillian Yuri Cunza. Made in 2001 and focusing on newcomers to Nashville, the film has been getting attention lately in the context of the national discussion about immigrants. Cunza made the first few minutes of the film available on YouTube and has been instrumental in bringing Hispanic films to the Nashville Film Festival.
