Actor Rodrigo de la Serna will star “El Salto de Papá”, Paramount+’s next original film for Latin America. Directed by Daniela Goggi (‘Abzurdah’, ‘El Hilo Rojo’), the movie is based on the same name by Martin Sivak, co-write by Andrea Garrote and produce by Viacom International Studios (VIS), in association with Infinity Hill y Rei Cine.
“’El Salto de Papá’ will be a story permeated by courage and tenderness as one man seeks to understand his complicated father, giving us a fresh and unique perspective of this shared history”, said Federico Cuervo, SVP & Head of VIS Americas. “We know Rodrigo de la Serna, who is an extraordinary actor, will masterfully weave the intricacies and nuances of this character to tell this poignant story”.
El Salto de Papá tells the story of a family caught in a political crossfire. In 1984, after years of exile, Jorge Sivak returns to Buenos Aires with his wife and children, who seek to rebuild their lives in a democratic country. He comes from a wealthy communist family who owns a small empire built by his father. Shortly after their return, Jorge’s brother, Osvaldo Sivak, is kidnapped. Jorge is forced to take over the family business while leading the search for his brother and dealing with the judgment brought upon them by the case’s media attention. Amid political and personal turmoil, Jorge does his best to maintain a sense of normalcy for his children, all while sustaining the same hopes and blows of a nation that seeks to reinvent itself.
