We’re thrilled to announce that our latest film ‘Clean’, (a co-production with Walking Fish Productions) will have its World Premiere at SXSW 2022.
Clean will premiere at 6:30pm on Saturday March 12th at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in South Lamar, with subsequent screenings on the 13th and 17th.
Clean is a fly-on-the-wall exploration of trauma cleaning through the journey of larger-than-life business owner Sandra Pankhurst and the workers at Melbourne’s Specialised Trauma Cleaning Services. We would like to acknowledge the enormous contribution Sandra Pankhurst made to this film and thank all the STC workers and clients who invited us into their lives over the past three years.
A huge thanks to Screen Australia, Film Victoria, SBS Australia and Madman Entertainment for the support, and the amazing team that helped us bring this project to life.
