“The Washing Society” brings us into New York City's laundromats and the experiences of those who work there. Lynne Sachs and playwright Lizzie Olesker observe the public space of the neighborhood laundromat and the intimate labor that happens there. Inspired by 1881 protests of Black laundresses in Atlanta, their film explores the intersection of history, underpaid work, immigration, and the sheer math of doing laundry.
