“Everyone has a story to tell.”

There’s more to a person than their job, than what you see. On a typical day in London, nine street sweepers ruminate on the nature of what they do, where they’re from, family, their loves, hopes and dreams.

Directed & Produced by Harold Chapman

Originally shot on the back of the short “Invisible” to give a real life look at street sweepers, “Sweep” has gone onto enjoy a healthy life of its own.
