La Nana / Die Perle (trailer)

ON NOW! Neurotic, muted, callous: Raquel has spent half her life as a live-in maid in Santiago...

At 41, Raquel has spent half her life as a live-in maid for an upper-class Santiago family, raising four children that are not her own. Now she considers herself part of the family and protects her turf like a dog. Stuck in dreary routines, neurotic and muted, Raquel buried her true self deep underneath a callous crust…

Silva’s hand-held camera subtly uncovers the complex social and moral dynamic involved in the maid-family living arrangement – with a good dose of humour and refreshing humanity.

LA NANA (DIE PERLE) | Directed by Sebastián Silva (Chile, Mexico 2009) with Catalina Saavedra. Opens in Berlin cinemas on June 17.
