Director Anderson Wright‘s short documentary is a touching and powerful portrait of an often invisible workforce.

Shot on location in Salt Lake City, Utah, While You Were Sleeping gracefully observes the quiet nature of various local cleaners, each offering an intimate testimony on their occupation and their perspectives.

Beautifully lensed by DP Patrick Golan, and expertly cut by editor Matt Schaff‘s gentle pacing, the film’s meditative tone allows space for recognition, acting as a poignant reminder of how undervalued and underpaid key workers are in today’s society.
