The Chambermaid

Avilés, Lila
In her feature debut, theater director Lila Avilés turns the monotonous work day 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 Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival and San Francisco International Film Festival.
