EMPLEADAS Y PATRONES (MAIDS & BOSSES)

Abner Benaim
Panama, Argentina 2010 64 min.

EmpHousehold workers and their peculiar relationships with their employers. Rich and poor, under the same roof, they share their entire lives, giving rise to highly complex emotional ties. The worker-employer relationship is one of the most intimate in our societies, while also being one of the most distant. A conflict of socioeconomic and cultural barriers explored from the insides of Latin American households, with an ironic, irreverent and revealing gaze. The director focuses on those who decide to look each other in the eye and regard one another as equals and those who do not.
