Movie: Clean

Finally, I am venturing back into picture theatres! (In fact, in October 2022 I have finally had to make a category for ‘Movies 2022). This documentary ‘Clean’ did very well at the Melbourne International Film Festival, and it is on limited release here in Melbourne. It is about Sandra Pankhurst, who featured in Sarah Krasnostein’s book The Trauma Cleaner (click link for my review), but this documentary is not associated with the book. It picks up on Sandra after the book has been published, with its attendant publicity, and as her health deteriorates. Sandra’s terrible childhood was alluded to, but not really explored in as much detail as in the book. How little we know about other people’s lives.
