22nd TDF: World Premiere

Two middle-aged women talk while cleaning hotel rooms and contemporary art spaces. They never meet on screen, however, their conversations and secret thoughts on present working conditions bring them close. Through two parallel videos documenting the nuanced nature of working as a cleaner, cleanliness emerges as a working condition. A comment on the relationship between art and labor; the story of two women whose hands have been soaked in bleach for years.
