CFF: The Chambermaid


La camarista

Last shown on 18 October 2019

Lila Avillés' impressive debut looks at the working environment of a chambermaid in one of Mexico City's most luxurious hotels. With a spare script and nuanced direction, Gabriela Carol's breakout performance brings charisma and warmth to Eve, a conscientious maid with a broad smile and kind demeanour. With its dry humour and sly observations about class, privilege and exploitation, 'The Chambermaid' is a confident, compelling and deeply resonant piece of filmmaking.

The Cambridge Film Festival is presented by the Cambridge Film Trust, a registered charity with a mission to foster film culture and education for the benefit of the public, in Cambridge, the Eastern region and throughout the UK.
