Cleaners is an absurd coming-of-age anthology film about high school students who each struggle with the standards and pressures of being pure, proper and clean while also discovering that the world they are boxed in is dirty and superficial to begin with. Imagine a film with 30,000 frames printed, photocopied, colored with highlighters, then scanned before being assembled back again digitally. A nostalgic trip to simpler days of self-discovery and social awakening.
