Carla's Song is a 1996 British film directed by Ken Loach and written by Paul Laverty.

Set in 1987, it tells the story of the relationship between a Scottish bus driver, George Lennox (Robert Carlyle) and Carla (Oyanka Cabezas), a Nicaraguan woman living in exile in Glasgow. Searching for her past (her family and boyfriend), Carla returns to war-torn Nicaragua with George, into the thick of the U.S. sponsored Contra insurgency against the Sandinistas.
