About “CALLADITA” (The Quiet Maid):
“CALLADITA” (The Quiet Maid) unfolds the tale of Ana, a recent immigrant from Colombia, who assumes the role of a maid in a luxurious mansion inhabited by a wealthy family of art dealers during their summer retreats. Ana’s laborious days are cloaked in silence, devoid of a formal contract, with the promise of decent conditions at summer’s end, provided she maintains discretion. However, an encounter with Gisela, a neighboring household employee, unveils a reality far removed from her initial expectations. Ana embarks on a journey of self-discovery and revelry amidst the scenic backdrop of Costa Brava, defying the constraints imposed upon her. Director Miguel Faus, hailed by the renowned entertainment magazine Variety as one of the ten Spanish filmmakers to watch, intricately crafts a narrative that captivates and resonates with audiences worldwide.
