Foreign Film & Discussion Series

The Maid

Please join former Drexel Professor Ramesh Kajaria on Sunday, December 12th at 2:00 pm to watch and discuss this award-winning film from Argentina.

In Spanish w/English subtitles, 2009. Not Rated. Registration not required.

Raquel has served as the live-in maid for the Valdes family for 23 years. Neither truly a member of the family nor simply a servant, she inhabits an undefined space somewhere in between. Threatened when the family decides to bring on extra help, she engages in a series of increasingly frantic acts to hold on to her position.

2010 Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film.
