The Laundromat Project is a community-based public art non-profit that brings arts programming to laundromats in the Greater New York area through two core programs: Create Change Public Artist Residency and Works in Progress. Both programs seek to raise the quality of life for people whose incomes do not guarantee broad access to mainstream arts and cultural facilities.

Don’t Bring Scott, (USA; 28 Minutes) is a personal documentary portrait that investigates the roots of homophobia in the American family and its reinforcement via religion and society. When David’s working class parents celebrate their 46th wedding anniversary without inviting his partner, this All-American, rural family of three generations is dragged into the 21st century.
