Fiction / Mexico / 2019

In her feature debut, Lila Ávilés turns the monotonous work day of Eve, 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.
