The Lunchroom
Ezequiel Radusky, 2020, Argentina, Uruguay, 78 min, OmeU

Synopsis

For 30 years Lila has been a cleaner in a provincial municipality building. She’s an important figure in the office’s carefully knit society because of the unofficial staff cafeteria, which she runs together with her friend Marcela. When Lila gets the opportunity to refurbish the lunchroom and run it officially as the boss, this sudden elevation of her status causes Marcela’s envy and starts a slow decay of the office’s delicate status quo.
