Juxtaposing a sinister mood with striking visuals, Carajita is a haunting domestic drama that plays like a psychological thriller, deriving oppressive tension from unspoken inequalities and the impunity of privilege in the Dominican Republic as they play out between an oligarch’s privileged daughter and her Black Dominican nanny.
Sara, the pampered daughter of a corrupt oligarch whose family recently relocated to Las Terrenas, thinks of her Black Dominican nanny, Yarisa, as “part of the family.” The two have a relationship that transcends their class and race conditions: similar to that of a mother and daughter. But an accident will test their intimate loyalty, the innocent illusion of never separating, and Sara’s naive ideas about race, class, and family.
