Nightcleaners

Berwick Street Film Collective UK 90 Min PG13 (Some Coarse Language) Singapore Premiere

A composite of intimate vignettes that exposes the precarious and exploitative nature of ‘women’s work’ in 1970s Britain.

Nightcleaners meanders through the empty streets and its sterile office blocks, documenting the lives of women who clean the outsized office complexes. Like shadowy phantoms, their invisible labour recedes back into the dark as the sun rises for a new work day.

Berwick Street Film Collective

The Berwick Street Film Collective was an active group of film collaborators comprising Marc KARLIN, Mary KELLY, James SCOTT and Humphry TREVELYAN. Active from 1970 to 1980 and much involved in the politics of the time, the collective actively documented the invisible realities of working-class communities. Brazenly self-reflexive, their oeuvre endures as a key reference point in British film history.
