Sweep It Up, Swig It Down

Kehrein, kehraus

Directed by Gerd Kroske
Germany, 1997


Gabi, Stefan and Henry used to work as street-sweepers for the city of Leipzig. I made a Film about it in 1990. A ruin is all that is left of the Municipal Street Cleaning Base of that time and the city Leipzig is moving after the reunion. The noise of air hammers are everywhere.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
