Thus far, I’ve profiled the festival opener, Africa United, which you can read Here, London River, Here, Soul Boy, Here, Goodbye Momo, Here, Venus Noire, Here, and the horror film Evil Angel, which stars Ving Rhames, Here.
Today, it’s a Panamanian comedy titled Chance, which tells the story of Toña and Paquita, the long-mistreated maids for the aristocratic González-Dubois family, who have grown tired their situation, and decide to turn the tables on their employer.
Directed by Abner Benaim, and starring Rosa Isabel Lorenzo and Aida Morales as Toña and Paquita, the maids, the film has screened in Panama, Colombia, Spain and Cuba. This, however, will be its New York premiere.
It screens this Sunday, Dec. 5 at 6:30 pm at Anthology Film Archives in lower Manhattan,
