Clean With Me (After Dark) Gabrielle Stemmer

Films A to Z

In the United States, suburban housewives film themselves doing housework. Each corner and every square inch of countertop must sparkle. They share their many videos on YouTube or Instagram. In this documentary filmed entirely on her computer screen, Gabrielle Stemmer brings us into their world. Frenetic housework gradually gives way to confessions, revealing the isolated women’s anxiety, depression and exhaustion, even as they support each other online. The filmmaker gradually and empathetically reveals these mothers’ personalities and situations before mapping their location – they’re so numerous, but so very alone, exposing the tragic side of our amusing online lives. (Apolline Caron-Ottavi)
