descriptif

Dirty Laundry est un court métrage de fiction de 16 minutes, un des cinq sélectionnés par le programme 2010 du Focus Features Africa First.
Il raconte l'histoire d'un gars qui veut juste laver son linge et va se retrouver dans une situation rocambolesque.


Afrique du Sud, 2010, Afrikaans, anglais et zoulou sous-titré en anglais, Video, 16 min

Réalisateur : Stephen Abbott

Dirty Laundry is a 16-minute short film, one of five selected as part of the Focus Features Africa First program for 2010. It tells the story of one guy who just wants to get his washing done.

It's 1:08AM and Roger is doing his laundry at The Wishy Washy. For Roger this is merely routine, but tonight there's something strange in the laundromat's water.
Before the night is out Roger will be abused by a middle-aged philandering businessman, subjected to severe scrotal attack by a short angry man, mistaken for a B-grade spy in a bathrobe, severely beaten, and finally scowled at by amorous teenagers.
And all Roger wanted was a 40-degree rinse and a mild spin cycle.

All Roger wants is to get his washing done at his local late night laundromat. Unfortunately, he will have to suffer verbal abuse, confusion, physical attack and a turn as an accidental spy before his spin cycle is complete. A simple concept comedy that delivers real laughs and delightful local characters.

South Africa, 2010, Afrikaans, English and Zulu with English subtitles, Video, 16 min

write-up: "Winner of three international awards, Stephen Abbott's Dirty Laundry is a microcosm of the biting humour evident in much post-apartheid cinema, where filmmakers take stock of the new order. If life itself is a laundromat in South Africa, Roger has a lot to face when he shows up at The Wishy Washy at 1am and begins to ‘separate his whites from his coloureds' …"
