The awards ceremony celebrating independent film will be held on March 5th in Los Angeles.
Set in Santiago, Chile, "The Maid" is the story of Raquel (Catalina Saavedra in a bold performance,) who 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 in this sharp comedic drama about family, class and self-discovery.
