An Act of Mutual Understanding recontextualizes the idea of laundry spaces beyond the sterile and utilitarian into a space of sensitivity and understanding. Set in the Philippines and in the United States, the act of laundry transcends cultural and linguistic barriers associated with migration. Laundromats become spaces of gathering where mundane activities are shared. Gossip ensues, numbers are exchanged, food is shared, and a trust is layered and intertwined. Intimate moments within these spaces multiply in meaning, exhibiting our ways of living and shared being, fostering kapwa relationships.
