LUNCH IN LIMA
Director/Writer: Gail Gilbert
Producer: Amber NarvaezCinematographer: Filip Dvorak
Editor: Gail Gilbert
Five women enjoy an elegant lunch in the home of a prominent Peruvian family in 1952. One of the guests is an American who has just arrived in Lima. Amid sparkling conversation and good cheer, the hostess makes a statement that stuns the American in its harsh view of class and position. None of the other guests acknowledge the brutality of her comment and continue with the lunch. The American is frozen in disbelief and remains haunted by the comment for the rest of her life.

Gail Gilbert - Writer/Director/Editor Her career as a Filmmaker has grown out of experience in the post-production world, combined with her background as a still photographer and her vision of an intimate, personal cinema. By attending the Festival de Cannes and the New York Film Festival, Gail keeps up with current filmmaking beyond what arrives to commercial screens. Seeing what is being made on a global level feeds her creative sensibilities as both an editor and a director. Gail credits her career in film to Luis Buñel’s THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE. It opened her eyes to the possibilities of film beyond a recreation of the world around us. She is married and has three children. They all love to travel and ski. Amber Narvaez - Producer An independent producer born in Peru, opened her creative mind to the innovative world of filmmaking, indulging in its ability to transform fictitious and real events into a memorable story on screen. Amber pursued her passion for film, graduating from Columbia College and obtaining her BA in Producing. She went on to produce independent short films, music videos and has collaborated with the producing teams at Style Network, DW Studios and Paramount Pictures. In the winter of 2010, the Chicago-raised Latina heads an independent short scheduled to film in Puerto Rico. Amanda Marien - Post Production Supervisor Born and raised in Chicago, Amanda Marien discovered her eye for detail and design at a young age. Her love for puzzles and visual graphics lead her to the world of post-production, where those worlds constantly collide. She graduated in 2010 from Chicago film school, Tribeca-Flashpoint Academy, specializing in editing. Amanda has always had an ironic, but positive outlook on life, and enjoys conveying that view through her writing and post-production techniques. She has recently taken up a life-long dream to learn the drums, and finds her practice drumming improves her visual beats in the editing bay. She has an Italian Greyhound mix, Zeppy, and a cat, Eva. They enjoy hanging out in 75-degree weather with fruit wedges hanging on their drinks.
