    • Synopsis
    • When I learned about the house I was interested in drama. I wanted to see how these women could manage living together under difficult circumstances. I found a house that was much quieter than I envisioned. Throughout the filming process we were careful to film the everyday and the training process most of the women take to get a job. It became a kind of journalistic film. While we where trying to capture the essence of the place, our presence altered the functioning of the space to degrees that we could not assess. Also, the film is not really about characters, but about a conglomeration of bodies interacting in space."
