With each of its 54 shots recorded on a different day, over the course of a year, this silent portrait of a window cleaner exploits the variable profilmic conditions to create a montage of duration that animates difference and change within the repeating patterns of the everyday. This film discovers the kind of beauty that is indeed everyday, and all around us, but which can also remain strangely obscured by the temporality of living itself.
