A film by Emma Braun
Above the rooftops of Vienna, while the city is still asleep.
A young woman practices a profession that enjoys the prestigious status of being a ''symbol of luck”, is essential for the environment as well as for safety, and is dominated by men: she is a chimney sweeper. As one of the few women working in this dying profession, her experience is unique and brings to light the variety, as well as the prejudice and difficulties she encounters on a regular basis.
