Cleaning In Progress
Director: Grant Holden Country: UK Genre: Animation Runtime: 7 m Block G Screening: TT Cinema 22.08 Time: 7-8.15pm
Set in a car park, ‘Cleaning in Progress’ focuses on the bristly relationship between a cleaner and his talking brush. Other than its innate ability to speak via its bristles, the brush is just like any regular old broom and has seen cleaners come and go. The young cleaner, on the other hand, is more naive yet committed to the job. Tensions arise between them in their differences of approach and attitude where ultimately, one cannot do their job without the other.
