40th Anniversary Retrospective: From the Vault Program
Like urban mountaineers, the immigrant window washers profiled in this short incisive film rappel down sheer cliffs of city glass. Knowing that a fatal fall may await them over the edge of any given skyscraper, they are nonetheless happy to take the risk because it yields a far better life than any they could ever hope for in their home countries. Still, their thoughts away from the job are unusually prone to existential musings.
