Through a dialogue with Remedios, Guadalupe and Dolores, domestic workers who had been taking care of my family and home for many years, I open the doors of the Mexico in which I grew up, to explore the relationships between employees and employers. As I wander through these houses linked to my childhood talking with these housekeepers, I question our conflicting bonds, rooted in the blur between work and affection. Why don’t I really know these women who watched me grow up? Muchachas is a documentary which, in addition to revealing the unforgettable presence of these figures who are absent from themselves, casts a little light on a social problem and explores the issue of the relationship to the Other.
