The Our Natasha documentary, dedicated to Natalia Oreiro, premieres on Netflix from August 6, TASS reports. The title of the film came from the pet name many residents of Russia use to call the Uruguayan actress. The film will be available in several languages: Russian, Spanish, English and Portuguese. The main character herself talks about her life.

The Latin American singer and actress is extremely popular with Russian audiences. According to her, the authors of the film tried to understand the reasons for this love, to find the connection of the star with Russia.

Perhaps, Natalia Oreiro suggested, the origins lie in the Wild Angel series and its soundtrack. The series brought Oreiro the world-wide fame. 

The star believes that Russia has become a second home for her. She has been performing in Russia for 15 years now. And every time she is greeted very warmly. She also recalled that several years ago she studied Russian and can now speak it a little.

The Our Natasha documentary was released four years ago. It was filmed by Uruguayan director Martin Sastre during a tour of Russian cities with the actress on the Trans-Siberian Express.

Then the director wanted to finalize the film, tell more about Oreiro's connection with Russia, about her childhood. The Latin American star added that filming continued in Uruguay and Argentina, she once again came to Russia.

Oreiro first visited Russia 20 years ago. And even then, according to her, she felt like she belonged, did not notice any cultural or geographical differences. Over the years, she has made many real friends in Russia.

Last month, the actress applied for Russian citizenship.
