Houses of Hristina

Hristina is a young Bulgarian woman who spends her days cleaning elegant canal-side houses in Amsterdam. This documentary takes a contemplative look at socio-economic class and the practical and emotional challenges faced by immigrants. Hristina shares her thoughts about her work, explaining that she feels like a prisoner invisible to the outside world. With dreams of being a professional photographer, Hristina captures her everyday routine in striking black and white photographs; she dreams of a better life.
