Big Wash

Kassandra Wellendorf, Denmark, 2003

101 min.DK/Short fictionChildren's films, Animation

The film takes place in a universe of laundry, water, foam and soap bubbles. The characters are children's clothes. On their way through washing and drying, the clothes act out typical children's conflicts about friendships, setting boundaries, bullying and loneliness. The chaotic washing process is used as a symbol of kindergarten and pre-school experiences. In a washing machine different clothes are thrown together. They may match in colour or shape, but not in other ways.
