Javier Fuentes-León; 2020; Peru/Colombia; 99 min.; in Spanish with English subtitles
Luzmila and Peta are siblings who work as housekeepers for Alicia and Carmen, two aristocratic sisters who live side by side in a fancy neighborhood in Lima. They are almost considered a part of the family—or at least that’s what it seems… When the well-to-do families gather together for a birthday dinner, secrets are revealed, ex-lovers reunite, childhood (gay) crushes are revealed, and all hell breaks loose along class divides. Director Javier Fuentes-León (Jury Award, UNDERTOW, SQFF 2009) brings us a darkly comedic tale that is as wildly entertaining as it is revealing of modern-day class struggles.
