Synopsis

In Housework, Margaret Salmon captures the uncanny, beautiful and at times hysterical moments in an alternative domestic cosmos. Highlighting the current state of female domestic roles as well as the status of women in larger society and referencing techniques from screen classics such as Hans Richterís Ghosts Before Breakfast, Mary Poppins and the American television show Bewitched, Salmonís film portrays daily household chores being completed by themselves, without human interaction, as supernatural phenomenon.
