Part-Time Work of a Domestic Slave (1973) - Region 1 - DVD

Gelegenheitsarbeit einer Sklavin

Product Information
The third film by Alexander Kluge, architect of the New German Cinema, features his sister Alexandra as Rosewitha Bronski, a woman trying to make her way in a hostile society. Rosewitha is a wife and mother, a local abortionist, and a factory worker turned labor activist. Rosewitha's life is chaotic: Her children scream for attention; her demanding husband is unemployed; the factory is in the midst of relocating; and doctors don't pay their referral fees. Kluge captures her frantic life in a cool, episodic style that makes use of voiceover and inserts to comment on Rosewitha's choices. Smart, provocative, and challenging, PART-TIME WORK OF A DOMESTIC SLAVE is remarkably relevant for today's women.
