Spring 2015 Film Series -Doméstica (Housemaids)

Thursday, April 9, 2015

7:00pm – 9:00pm

Joukowsky Forum, Watson Institute, 111 Thayer Street.

The spring film series will seek to broaden and diversify the often sensationalist representations of urban life in Brazil’s two mega-metropoli: Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. 

The footage for the 2012 film "Doméstica" comes from seven teenagers who filmed the housemaids who work for them for a week.
