La Mami

Laura Herrero Garvín
2019 • Mexico, Spain • 82’
International Premiere

One of the rooms inside the legendary Barba Azul Cabaret has become a shelter for the girls working there: the women’s bathroom. Every night, La Mami, who’s in charge of the bathrooms, offers them the warmth and advice they need to take on the challenge they face in the dance hall. They remind us that alliances are crucial when the society in which we live is constantly judging and stigmatising us.
