Doméstica / Housemaids Programme 2020

by Gabriel Mascaro New World View

Seven children. Seven housemaids. Seven life stories. Filmmaker Gabriel Mascaro convinced adolescents from various cities and social backgrounds to follow their nannies around with a camera over a period of one week, and then give the resulting material to him. DOMESTICA highlights the complex relationships between the nannies, their employers and the youth in their care – a working environment where intimacy and distance are constantly at odds with each other. The film offers a rare insight into a phenomenon reminiscent of colonial times that continues to shape Brazil today.
