Sorry - Event Sold Out


(2022, dir. Lachlan Mcleod, w/ Sandra Pankhurst)

Clean will finish at approximately 6:25pm.

The genuinely inspirational story of how ‘trauma cleaner’ Sandra Pankhurst responded to an unseen world with radical kindness. Sandra Pankhurst knew humanity at its worst, as well as its best, having lived many different lives: survivor of childhood abuse, suburban parent, drag queen, sex worker, funeral director, business owner, motivational speaker. Generous and formidable, she underwent transition in the 1980s and found her purpose running STC Services, a successful Melbourne trauma-cleaning business that she founded in the 1990s. For three decades, Pankhurst and her team – who’ve also survived tough times – have brought order and care to homes made chaotic by hoarding, addiction, violence and crime. (IMDB)
