A San Diego premiere, the Latin American Studies Program, in partnership with the Social Justice Learning and Living Community, will present Chance (Panama, 2010), followed by a discussion led by Alejandro Meter (LAS Program Director).

This hilarious comedy tells the story of Toña and Paquita, the housekeepers for the aristocratic González-Dubois family. These domestic employees have been mistreated for quite some time and they are tired of their situation. So when the family plans a shopping trip to Miami, the maids have a plan of their own; to take control of the mansion. Unexpectedly, they will also discover a family secret. (Synopsis written by Chicago Latino Film Festival.)

In Spanish, with English subtitles.  Watch the trailer.
