Screening: The Chambermaid
Updated: May 4
Section: El Otro México Directed by: Lila Avilés Language: Spanish (English Subtitles) Year of Production: 2019 Country of Origin: México Duration: 1hr 42 min Cast: Gabriela Cartol, Teresa Sánchez
Theater director Lila Avilés turns the monotonous workday of Eve (Gabriela Cartol), a chambermaid at a high-end Mexico City hotel, into a beautifully observed film of rich detail. Set entirely in this alienating environment, with extended scenes taking place in the guest rooms, hallways, and cleaning facilities, this minimalist yet sumptuous movie brings to the fore Eve’s hopes, dreams, and desires. As with Alfonso Cuarón’s ROMA, set in the same city, The Chambermaid salutes the invisible women caretakers who are the hard-working backbone of society. – New Directors/New Films
