Directed by Lizzie Olesker & Lynne Sachs, 44min | 2018

When you drop off a bag of dirty laundry, who’s doing the washing and folding? Mixing revealing interviews with poetic performance, filmmaker Lynne Sachs and playwright Lizzie Olesker go behind the scenes of New York City’s laundromats to uncover the hidden labor that goes into cleaning your clothes—a story that intersects with history, immigration, race, community, and capitalism. Preceded by a documentary shorts program.

Q&A with Lizzie Olesker and Lynne Sachs
