Featured Work: Clotheslines (1982) Roberta Cantow

A film that takes laundry seriously as a form of folkart, a fraught social signifier and lens for women to reflect on the joys, pains and ambivalences of household chores.

Affectionate and witty, Clotheslines is on the one hand a documentary on laundry and a social portrait of an America literally strewn with clotheslines, and on the other an exploration of the wide range of responses that can exist within apparently shared experienced – in this case, doing the washing. This engaging film pays homage to the commonality of women’s experience.
