Lila Avilés’ debut feature THE CHAMBERMAID is a NY Times Critics’ Pick and recently won for Best First Film at the Ariel Awards (Mexico's Academy Awards)! “Quietly stunning … After you’ve seen it, the world looks differently” says A.O. Scott.

Synopsis: A deluxe Mexico City hotel feels confining for Eve (Gabriela Cartol), a chambermaid whose days are filled with making beds, cleaning bathrooms, and running interference for a panoply of precious guests demanding special attention. As she yearns for independence within and beyond the confines of the hotel's luxury walls, her hopes and desires materialize alongside a seething anger sparked by a newly feminist streak.
