"Highly Recommended. Proud voices, angry voices, sheepish, humorous, wistful, and bitter voices express layers of feelings and experience that will be a revelation to both men and women." -The New York Times
"Highly Recommended. One of the best films about women ever made." -Vic Skolnick, American Independent Series
With verve and humor this multi-award winning classic documentary shows the love/hate relationship that women have with the task of cleaning the family's clothes. As we see the clothes flapping in the wind and hear the voices - some proud, some angry, some wistful - we realize that doing laundry calls forth deep feelings about one's role in life. Some remember when their mothers and grandmothers tackled the same chores using washtubs and washboards or even river streams. This Emmy award winning film pays homage to the commonality of women's experience. Produced by Roberta Cantow. 98/08DE JSCA 33 min. Home/Personal Use DVD or VHS Available: $29.95
