Join Word Up Books for a free screening of Tú y yo (Dominican Republic, 2015) as part of the Documentales Sociales en las Américas series.
The Mrs., a widow, and Aridia, a young maid, live together in a house filled with orchids in the center of Santo Domingo. Aridia cleans, the Mrs. gardens, and when work is slow, they can share some gossip. Sometimes, the atmosphere gets tense before they can laugh again. Through an intimate portrait of two women, Tú y yo explores class, race, and the relationships that push against those categories.
