Back Row has been filmed in a professional dry cleaning space in Rio de Janeiro and Rome. The camera follows closely a model working with the staff of the dry cleaning, ironing, steaming, washing, hanging and folding sheets … the camera moves on a micro level between textile, architecture and skin surfaces hardly ever offering an overall glimps of the space, rather detecting it through scapel a like camera drives through the enire scenario, cutting and cropping space and material.
