Sebastián Silva, Chile, 2009, 95 min. 

The tensions between social classes come to a boil in this dark comedy. Raquel, a long-time domestic worker for an upper-class family, struggles with her job duties while coping with various ailments. Pilar, the head of the household, decides to hire additional help, throwing her into an existential crisis. At once valued and over-worked, and with nowhere to go, Raquel attempts to drive away prospective replacements.

Friday afternoon intro and discussion led by Karina Vásquez, Director of the Spanish Community-Based Learning Program.
