Event description
The Chambermaid/La Camarista (Lila Aviles, 2018)

About this Event

6 pm - Dinner and Reception

7 pm - Screening

This extraordinary film is set entirely in one of the most luxurious hotels in Mexico City and follows the story of a young woman who works as a chambermaid there. Dedicated, conscientious and filled with intelligence and compassion, Eve performs her duties with intensity and dedication. She takes continuing education classes after her punishing work schedule in the hopes of improving her situation. She talks on the phone to a child she rarely sees: the conclusion of the film is luminously beautiful as we follow Eve’s carefully observed voyage to self knowledge.
