FILM | New Ibero-American Cinema. The Lunchroom (Argentina /2019/ Spanish/ 78 mins)Dir. Ezequiel Radusky. Lila and Marcela have always worked as cleaning staff in a state agency. They know its nooks and crannies like no one else and have invented a way of subsistence —and a dream— managing a completely irregular dining room in an abandoned corner of the building. But times change: a new director arrives, with her cynical speeches full of commonplaces, and with her the empty promises, the closing of the dining room and a wave of dismissals that destroy the precarious balance of life in the State and transform the everyday tasks into a struggle for survival.Collab.
