Work: Window Washers

We'll go wash windows in heaven so that heaven is clean.
--from the film Paraiso

I've previously posted about what people do all day. Work. Jobs. Making a Living.

Windows need washing and many of them are not easy to get to and involve some danger. A short film (10 minutes) features three Mexican window washers who clean the windows of some of Chicago's tallest buildings when they are not doing construction work. Their conversation tells us how they see the world and very little of it is about scenery or looking down.
