Unfolding

I was interested in making a film about women's work spaces; the launderette is a functional space, but it is also a place where women meet socially.

I spent a long period of time familiarising myself with the environment before commencing filming. My initial feeling of hesitancy in intruding into the space informed the editing of the film. My attempt at documenting "in" the lives of the women was superseded by my desire to question my own role as maker.
