By Taymour Boulos (Lebanon) • 13’ • 2021
In the middle of one of his recurrent anxiety attacks, a Lebanese young man living in Brussels finds rest in a laundromat. From the embodied eye of a spinning washing machine, we see him traveling around the place along with his microphone, driven by the obsession of understanding the origin of his discomfort. A symphony of washing machine reverberations and human voices celebrating encounters of people in everyday places.
