  • The Wondrous World of Laundry

    2009. Germany. Directed by Hans-Christian Schmid. Berlin’s luxury hotels send their sheets to Poland, for cleaning and pressing by hand, and they are returned to Berlin the next day. European borders are porous, Polish labor is cheaper, and the women who do the work rely on German money to survive. Schmid, a filmmaker whose sensitivities lie with the under-represented, appreciates this process, and with wry affection celebrates the working women who make this transaction possible. In German, Polish; English subtitles. 97 min.
