High Lakes

(super 16mm/HD, color/sound)

High Lakes is a 16mm film that combines staged scenes along with observational documentary recordings of summer housekeeping work at a lakeside resort in the Oregon Cascades. The film’s voice-over sound track includes interviews with family, friends and colleagues discussing their own past work experiences. These voices are accompanied by my personal reflections on my time working in resort housekeeping, and raises questions about precarious work, both its place in the economy, and what it means for the future of work.
