The Chambermaid

Eve (Cartol), a young chambermaid at a luxurious Mexico City hotel, confronts the monotony of long workdays with quiet examinations of forgotten belongings and budding friendships that nourish her newfound and determined dream for a better life. Avilés’ striking debut employs a quasi-documentary approach as it accompanies Eve on her daily routine to offer a microcosm of contemporary Mexican society.
