My Josephine

Barry Jenkins

Two Arab immigrants work in a launderette where, soon after 9/11, American flags are washed for free. As they meticulously fold up the flags, a love affair unfolds. Jenkins’ first short film, made as a student, was filmed by co-student and cameraman James Laxton, who also did the cinematography for Medicine for Melancholy and Moonlight.
