Staff Only

Both a sensitive, perfectly acted coming-of-age tale and a razor-sharp critique of the exploitative "all-inclusive" tourism industry, Neus Ballús’ drama follows 17-year-old Marta (newcomer Elena Andrada, a natural) as she reluctantly embarks on a holiday in Senegal with her travel-agent father (Sergi López) and grumpy brother. New worlds open up for Marta when she goes beyond the "staff only" doorway, and Ballús uses her directorial skill to skewer neo-colonialist attitudes in the process.
