In this short video, the US director Anderson Wright takes viewers on an atmospheric, nocturnal tour of Salt Lake City as seen through the eyes of the people who clean while most of the city rests. As each cinematically framed scene captures someone tidying up in a different setting – including a shopping mall, a bowling alley and a hockey rink – the workers provide a wide range of perspectives on their job. Some enjoy the solitude while others find it lonely. Some find cleaning deeply satisfying and feel appreciated, while others feel overlooked and underpaid. Through such varied points of view, Anderson creates a meditative patchwork built from a little-seen, often overlooked and oddly enchanting world.
