Low Job

Australia, 1997 (MIFF 1997, Documentary)

Director: Jan Bruck

John's only sink is in the bathroom. We see him expertly wash up the dishes in this challenging space while reflecting on matters such as music, work ethics, economics and the dishes themselves. A short video which is surprising, intimate and arresting. Filmmaker Jan Bruck manages to be both flippant and earnest, all the while applying some genuine formal values.
