Documentary, directed by : Fonza Woods, cinematography : Tracey Fritz, Fonza Woods, film editing : Fonza Woods, cast : Fannie Drayton, (1981), 16mn.
During the November month the three continents film festival proposes a retrospect about African - American women film directors. Amang the discoveries we can find a short movie from Fonza Woods. The film director tapes the voice of a maid names Fannie during a cleaning of a sportroom. Inside this place nobody knows who Fannie is and the purpose of Fonza Woods is to introduce the Fannie story. The Fannie daily life is punctuated by working, her children and also her husband but she never wants to let this life down because this routine is something reassuring for her. This short can gives a political interpretation about a divided America but it really speaks about the incommunicability between people inside our contemporary societies.
