The Naked Screen

(La pantalla desnuda)
Florence Jaugey | Drama, Romance, Fiction

2014 | 93 minutes | Nicaragua

Octavio, the son of a poor family, and Alex, the son of a wealthy family in northern Nicaragua, are best friends. Octavio’s fascination with Alex turns into an obsession, and he is quick to sideline anyone or thing that gets in between them.


A cautionary tale about sex, technology, and public shaming set in a Nicaraguan town, Florence Jaugey’s The Naked Screen is a thought-provoking portrait of young people growing up in an increasingly complicated digital age.

Alex and Esperanza are college sweethearts, madly in love and unable to keep their hands off each other. When Alex meets scholarship student Octavio, the two form a quick friendship, with Octavio becoming increasingly obsessed with Alex’s wealthy lifestyle.

In the heat of passion, Alex and Esperanza record an intimate video, and their worst nightmare comes true when they learn Octavio has uploaded it to the internet. From that moment on, nothing will be the same for either one of them.


"This cautionary tale from filmmaker Florence Jaugey (La Yuma, 2010 AFI Latin American Film Festival) is a searing portrait of love in the digital age." — AFI Silver Spring

"Questioning the role of technology in our private and public lives, The Naked Screen is a relevant portrait of modern-day intimacy." —  Santa Barbara International Film Festival

"Jaugey's film could be viewed as an allegory to today's online bullying. These individuals sit in their dark rooms, most of the time going unidentified, creating irreversible, devastating impacts to the real-life people outside." — Nelson Carvajal,
