The Washing Society

Next Week! Mon 5/20 7pm, DCTV | $8


When you drop off a bag of dirty laundry, who’s doing the washing and folding? Having had its North American Premiere at BAMcinemaFest, The Washing Society brings us into New York City laundromats and the experiences of the people who work there. Collaborating together for the first time, filmmaker Lynne Sachs and playwright Lizzie Olesker observe the disappearing public space of the neighborhood laundromat and the continual, intimate labor that happens there.


Following the screening, we will be joined by Directors Lizzie Olesker and Lynne Sachs, Rosanna Aran of Laundry Workers Center, and Zishun Ning of Chinese Staff & Workers’ Association. You don’t want to miss! Tickets >
