Laundry Time

Laundry Time

Laundry Time is a short atmosphere film. It explores one of those unfortunately too scarce moments when one has no choice but to put oneself on « pause » and let time go by.

The viewer accompanies the users of two laundromats of the St-Michel district, Montréal, as they let their thoughts and moments of silence freely flow through this freed-up time.
