Details

In her feature debut, theatre 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.

The Saturday 27 July (18:15) screening will be introduced by Femspectives founders Lauren Clarke and Kathi Kamleitner. Kathi and Lauren will also lead an informal audience discussion after the film in GFT Project Room – all welcome.
