About the Film

2019, Kino Lorber, 102 min, Mexico, Dir: Lila Avilés

Eve (Gabriela Cartol) is a young chambermaid working in one of the most luxurious hotels in Mexico City, an exclusive glass tower inhabited by guests so wealthy she can only imagine their lives through intimate fantasies of the belongings they’ve left behind. Believing her situation will improve if she gets promoted to work at the executive-level suites, she accepts a grueling schedule and enrolls in the hotel’s adult education program. A budding friendship with her coworker and an awkward, silent flirtation with an inaccessible window-washer prod her toward much-needed bravery. But when things don’t go as planned, Eve transforms her lonely explorations and newfound courage into the necessary strength to face a life outside the glimmering tower. Winner for “Best First Work” at the Platino Xcaret Awards for Ibero-American Cinema. In Spanish and French with English subtitles.
