Accomplished documentarian Natalia Almada (Sundance Documentary Directing Award, 2009) makes her fiction debut with Everything Else, starring Academy Award-nominated Adriana Barraza (Amores Perros, Babel). The film follows Doña Flor, a 63-year-old bureaucrat living in Mexico City who has worked in the same government office for 35 years, attending unsentimentally to people from all corners of Mexican society. When she loses the only living creature she cares for, she goes into crisis. With a keen directorial eye, impeccable framing, and inspired by Hannah Arendt’s idea that bureaucracy is one of the worst forms of violence, the story ultimately becomes a mesmerizing contemplation on solitude.
