Calculated into the layout are tiny, low-ceilinged rooms intended for the so-called “maids.” A quarter-million of these maids hire themselves out to private households in Lebanon. The women are from African nations, Bangladesh, and the Philippines. A modern form of human trafficking and slavery, which director Roser Corella examines from multiple perspectives. Her goal: making visible what happens behind the curtains.
